Fasnacht-themed Training

With celebrations for Fasnacht fast approaching, it was time to kick off training in February with a Fasnacht-theme. All members were asked to come in their best carnival costumes, or something bright and colourful, to scare away winter. Because, let’s face it, we all want it to be summer so we can play on the outside courts!

It was a great turnout and everyone put in a great effort into their outfits. It isn’t every Wednesday that we can say we had a zebra, clown, frog, penguin and a hula girl turn up for training. It was tricky for some to train in their costumes but we still managed to get through some tough ball skills and a mini tournament.

Colourful for Carnival!

In 2020 we are re-introducing a monthly social after training. It seemed a shame to keep our excellent costumes a secret so we decided to share them with the clientele at the Outback pub. There’s nothing unusual about being dressed as a frog in the pub on a Wednesday, right?

It was also a cause for celebration for Kim, Lakshmi, Lorna and Lyndsay who had full attendance at training in January and were the winners of our Jump Into January competition. Well done Ladies!

The committee also had a meeting for the second time in 2020 on Thursday evening when items on the agenda included tournaments, coaching and where on earth the first aid kit has disappeared to?!?

The committee will next meet on March 5th. If you have any items that you would like to be discussed please let us know by email or just grab one of us at training. The agenda and minutes will be uploaded to Club Calendar when they are available.

Advance notice: there will be no training on 19th February due to school holidays.
