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.
If you think you would like to pick up your racquet again and have a go, please give me a ring on 01872 865767 or e-mail vmandrsmith@outlook.com and I will be happy to give you more details.

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.

Mills Hall Carharrack Wednesdays 1:30 to 3:30

We have been playing at the Mills Hall in Carharrack just over a month now and we are beginning to settle in. 
Due to availability at the Hall there was a need to change the day we play our sessions which troubled us initially, but our concerns were unfounded as the majority of our members have accepted the change happily. In fact our numbers have increased over the past month.
The hall we play in is a touch smaller than the previous venue which requires us to remain on close and friendly terms with each other, which is no great hardship. The playing surface is the original wooden floor which has seen much use over the years and leads to some intriguing games at times.
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!

There will be no Carpet bowls on the following dates:
      Wednesday, February 12th.
      A good number of our members will be at the Manor House, Okehampton, during that week including the players who have the door access codes and normally open up for us.

Wednesday, February 19th.
The annual Carharrack Panto. takes place during this week and the hall is stuffed full of chairs and paraphernalia.

The Table Tennis Group

We meet every Monday and Wednesday at 4pm until 6pm at Feock Parish Hall.

We are a friendly group in which all members mix together irrespective of experience.

Ten Pin Bowling -

Our first meeting of the new year saw 28 people ready and willing to take on the challenge to win the trophies! A good number may be swelled by three new players, Gordon, Nick and Lesley. We hope you all enjoyed your first game!
The scores were not the best this month with some of the favourites below par!
Les and Brenda made it a Moulson double with scores of 103 & 104 respectively. Well done to them both. Kevin,  who had left thinking he was beaten,  also scored 103 so we had a draw for the men but no picture of Kevin!  Richard fluffed his last bowls  narrowly missing out on a winning score and was close with 102. 


Our next meeting will be on Feb 4th at  Truro bowl. We start at 11.30 so we meet at 11.15am new members always welcome. 
More info ring 07497323746 or 01326619431

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.

We will not be having a session on Monday, February 10th as several of us will be at the Manor House sports hotel.
If you fancy seeing what yoga can do for you, please either give me a ring on 01326 376843 or email me on tolittlepeople@aol.com, or ring Janet Bishop on 01872 862949, we have a lot of fun as well as improving our health.
We can always find room for more.
