Badminton 1- Thursdays:

 

THURSDAY MORNING BADMINTON – PERRANWELL VILLAGE HALL
Some of our long term loyal members have sadly had to drop out of our group due to dodgy knees, hips or elbows!  The joys of increasing age!  As a result  we are now able to welcome new members with some playing experience whether recent or back in the dim and distant youth (unfortunately we cannot accommodate beginners).   A fairly regular commitment is a help.
We are a friendly bunch who play hard, but also enjoy the companionship while we are sitting out.

Badminton 2 - Monday:

Weds Badminton is now Monday Badminton! We now meet at the Ord Statter Hall at Mylor Bridge. Starting time 09.30 hrs until we have had enough at around Midday. The hall is smaller and therefore the court is smaller than Perranarworthal Hall and  has height impediments meaning that the game is gentler and less physically taxing for some. However we can enjoy the facility and remain a friendly if not often a fiercely competitive group of players.  Come and join us if you want, bring your own drinks, energy snack  and racquet,whatever. Contact me: Les Moulson, on 01326340110, or else email me on lesmoulson@gmail.com

 

 

BADMINTON 3-THURSDAYS (late afternoon).

BADMINTON 3

Following our move from Richard Lander School, Badminton 3 now meets in the Sports Hall at Penryn College. Having moved the group to the Penryn/Falmouth area we would welcome anyone from the area who wishes to join us to come along and have a game. We are not highly skilled players but we do play to win in a pleasant and friendly manner. Because of examination space requirements at the college, in June, for one month only, we are meeting on Wednesdays at 7.30pm for our hour of play. From July onwards, we are looking to revert to our normal Thursday evenings at 7.30pm. We have three courts available so there is plenty of opportunity for everyone to play for most of the hour. If you fancy a game, a great and enjoyable way of keeping fit, come along and give us a try. To get to the College, drive along Kernick Road from the Asda/B&Q roundabout until you come to a mini roundabout, turn left and the college carpark is up the slope on either the left or the right (two carparks). The sports hall is in the main building.

Carpet Bowls:

                                        -----------------


We play on a Wednesday between 1.30 - 3.30 pm when time is called by the Bells, but we welcome anyone who can arrive 20 minutes earlier to help lay out the equipment.


New members will receive a warm welcome from myself personally, so come along and give it ago.
We are also hoping to arrange a home and away match with St. Day carpet bowls club in the new year so I am currently assessing  our players for the following qualities:
a. Ability to differentiate between black and brown bowls!
b. Colour blindness!
c. Sociability, being able to accept that the opposition's bowl may be nearer to the jack!
d. Reasoning, to realise the tea break is only 15 minutes long and not 45 minutes!

Short Tennis

at Feock Church Hall:

Short Tennis 1

The short tennis group that played at Feock will be relocating to the
Ord Statter Hall at Mylor Bridge. I would like to thank the Hall
committee at Feock for the time we have spent there but the new venue
should give us a little more room to socialise and play.

If the Government 'road map' goes to plan we intend to hold our first
session on Tuesday 25th May, starting at 1.30pm. We only have capacity
for limited numbers so please contact me if you are interested but have
not played with us before as I have a waiting list.

The Table Tennis Group

We meet every Monday and Wednesday at 4pm until 6pm at St Feock Church Community Hall, TR3 6SA. Occasionally we are unable to use the hall, so if you wish to join us it is best to ring the group leader to check this, rather than risking just turning up. We are a friendly group in which all members mix together irrespective of experience.

From 1st September 2021 we will meet at St Feock Church Community Hall.


Please would all players have received a double dose of vaccine, and preferably a booster as well.
The group leader is Merrick Elderton (01872 865336)

 

Ten Pin Bowling -

Our first bowling session since Feb 2020 wasn't quite as I had hoped, as the photo shows everyone who turned up! Pat had no trouble being the winner of the mens trophy and Maureen won the ladies.  No competition for Pat as the only man there,  and we all certainly needed the practice! 
It was a fun morning for the five of us and I know for definite that others will be joining us next time. It was such a beautiful day and with other things going on and gardens to sort out and traffic jams etc, people had other things to do. 
I hope some of our regulars will join us next month to enjoy rolling a few balls! Until then everyone, take care and if anyone would like to join our group, please either just turn up or give me a call on 01326 619431 or 07947 323746   
Our next session at Truro Bowl is on October 4th  11.00am to start at 11.30 am.

Yoga:

 

We meet at Feock Village Hall from 2 - 3.30pm on Mondays. We have now had sessions for our yoga group at Feock Church Hall, with members who have different abilities and have been able to enjoy some gentle stretching, yoga breathing and relaxation, working within their own limitations.

As September approaches I'm sure no one will be surprised to hear that I am very doubtful that our sessions 
will be starting up again for the foreseeable future. I have been in touch with Rosalind and made sure our slot
on Mondays will be available for us when we are allowed to restart.
In the meantime hope you are all managing to put some time aside to keep supple so when we do start it 
it won't be too much of an effort !
