Mini 3-day Olympics 2013! (Day 1)

Sports event for those of us who have been inspired by the efforts of the Derby Sociables Triathlete's! (But are no-where near that fit!). Here is a 3-day 'Mini Sports Event' where you can have a go at playing Badminton Squash and/or Table Tennis!

I have secured provisional one hour bookings for two weekday evenings and one weekend lunchtime (40 mins for Squash). Hopefully this will enable everyone to find a time that suits. I will be posting this on three seperate days so please RSVP on which day is the best fit for you AND which discipline you prefer.

The cost per session will not be more than £2.50 per person (except Squash at £3.80 each) as we can play doubles at Badminton and Table Tennis.

Deadline for my confirming this with Moorways Leisure Centre is 15th August so you have two weeks to respond. I will post information on how to pay when I have a firm number of respondees. Hopefully we can make this resounding success as well as lots of fun!

    it was really fun, thanks for organising... & I don't know what this we're all winners is...?! In table tennis Chris won 4 games & Helen & I each won 2... I reckon Chris was clearly the winner :-)

    Hi, I might be being a bit thick... but is it just one of the days or 3, & do we just stick to one sport? I quite fancy having a go at all of them & would happily play on all 3 days! but my preference is table tennis, I've recently had a few games after over 20 years gap & really enjoyed it. I can do all 3 days & wasn't sure if I should sign up for all?

    • Chris

    Hi y'all,

    I will be closing rsvp's for all three days of this event by 12th August as the leisure centre cannot hold advance booking of courts for more than one month. Thank you all for your interest and watch this space for more information on payment method.
