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.

Barbecue

Our Friday short tennis group were lucky enough to have a perfect evening for our Bbq on the beach in Friday. The sun shone as as it went down over the sea it made a picture postcard scene. The hues of the pink and lilac sky across the glistening sea was perfect. Our musician for the evening was, once again, Eric with his guitar, who entertained us with a few songs.  24 of us gathered with our barbecues and we soon had them fired up and sausages sizzleing.
Afterwards we wondered why we only do thus once a year! Watch your email and we might fit another in before the end of summer!

Also our Xmas Dinner will be on the 16th Dec at Killiow Golf club. More details later.


If anyone would like to come along on a Friday morning to Tremough sports centre, and try short tennis for yourself, you will be most welcome.

The Table Tennis Group

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

The group leaders are Merrick Elderton (01872 865336) and Liz Grant (01872 865325).

 

Ten Pin Bowling -

 

 

26 bowlers were at Tuesday's TPB Group in Truro. We were able to welcome some "new" members who were treated to the new all wooden bowls and recovery system. By some quirk of the system and with much encouragement from the group, I achieved a score of 141 and took the men's trophy! The editor's wife achieved a score of 100 to take the Ladies' trophy. We are pictured here advising Richard as to how to use Chris's phone camera!
This successful group meets at Truro Bowl at 11 ish on the first Tuesday of each month. Bowling and a very reasonably priced meal are available at a discount for U3A members.  
 The next meeting will be on Tuesday 4th December. Why not come along? It's a very sociable event and as I have proved by winning with a massive score of 141, it's not difficult!
 See you there.

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.
Just a reminder, our yoga sessions finish for a Christmas break on Monday 10th December and start again on Monday January 7th, anyone interested in joining us in the New Year, please contact me on 01326 376843 or on tolittlepeople@aol.com or Janet Bishop on 01872 862949. All welcome.
