21/06/15 Graham Parker Memorial Day
In order for us as a club to celebrate Graham Parkers life, we are holding a fun family tennis afternoon on Sunday 21st June 2015. The plan is to have a barbecue going throughout the afternoon and plenty of food and drink. The courts will be open and we are hoping that (rather like a Tuesday night), we will all find the opportunity to play a few games. The food and drink will be provided, but we will be collecting donations so that we can buy something for the club in Graham's memory, and maybe have something left for British Heart Foundation.
Please let Laura Wise know if you are able to make it on email@example.com
19/07/15 Thirsk Athletic Club Back to School Sports Day
We are seeking to generate some local community spirit amongst the sports clubs in the Thirsk area and also to help raise awareness for each club. We would therefore like to invite your club to enter a team to take part in our Charity “Back to School” Sports Day. Events will include Old School races such as Egg and Spoon Race, Sack Race, Mini Obstacle Race, 3-legged race and a good old fashioned Sprint. Teams will consist of 5 members and a maximum of 2 teams per club can enter. Children may participate (if supervised by an adult) but there will be no age categories for the races. Heats will take place during the day, with the Grand Finals taking place around tea time. The bar will be open and there will be catering onsite, offering you the opportunity to purchase food and drink throughout the day.
