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.

Carpet bowls at Carharrack S. & S. Club.


The Carharrack committee have kindly agreed to a change of time for our sessions on Monday afternoons. Because of the concern with driving at night our members have opted to play from 2-4 pm for this winter period. We can still accommodate new members especially as we now have a friendly game arranged with Hilary Harrod's team on their home territory at Mabe.We can still accommodate new members especially as we now have a friendly game arranged with Hilary Harrod's team on their home territory at Mabe.We are due to play on the evening of February 25th with a return match to be arranged.


New members will receive a warm welcome from myself personally, so come along and give it ago. We are currently in talks with the Carharrack committee regarding an earlier time, and perhaps a different day which will enable our members to return home before dusk
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!

Ten Pin Bowling -

Our February ten pin bowling  session was well attended again, with one new member and lots of regulars turning up to compete for the trophies! We missed quite a few regulars but I'm sure they will join us again in the next few months.
We had some lovely news from two of our regular attendees andce sh them all the very best. They know who they are!
Our winners this month were Les with a great score of 137 and Brenda Williams with an excellent score of 134. Well done to them both.
Our next meeting is on February 5th where we hope to see you all again and if anyone would like to join us, please come along to Truro Bowl at 11.00am for an11.30am start. Some of us stay for lunch which is always good and gives us 
a nice time to chat.

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 have now completed our third year of yoga, our numbers have stayed fairly high with many participants reporting more flexibility and improved breathing. Relaxation methods have also been a benefit. We have a relaxed approach to yoga, everyone is able to work within their own limits.
There will not be a yoga session on February 11th as many of us will be making our annual trip to the Manor House Hotel, we finish on May 13th for our summer break with the exception of Easter Monday, April 22nd.

please contact me on 01326 376843 or on tolittlepeople@aol.com or Janet Bishop on 01872 862949. All welcome.
