I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the PWAC athletes who have taken part this winter in the Sports Hall Competitions, it has been fun to watch teams working together many of which were new to sportshall at the beginning of the season it is great preparation for the Summer season.
Also finally massive thanks to all parents who ferried all the athletes across the county these past few months to the events.
It’s been great to have you along as the support crew.
See you all next season – Janine, Lorraine and Janet
The first Sportshall of next season will hopefully be at Tunbridge Wells on Sunday 11th October .
