BUNDABERG CLOSED CHAMPIONSHIPS
Our annual club championships, which are open to ALL club members, will be held on the weekend of Friday 13 - Sunday 15 November. The entry form and players' gradings will be sent out to each member, so keep an eye out for them. There are 49 events in total so everyone has at least a couple of events that they should consider entering. As usual, for the weekend events, you can enter as many events as you like for only $25 – each individual event costs $6. For the Friday Junior events, each costs $5. For a weekend of great competition, make sure you get involved!!!
ERIC CREE SHIELD v ROCKHAMPTON
Our annual inter-club match against Rockhampton for the Eric Cree Shield will be held here on Saturday 7 November. Rockhampton currently holds the Shield, and has done so for several years, so it’s time to GET IT BACK. If you are available, please add your name to the list at the canteen – we want our strongest possible team because Rocky always sends most of its best players. We need at least 21 players so here is your chance to wear the red Bundy shirt in a representative team.
Play is scheduled to start at 6.30 pm after a barbecue at 5.30 pm. Both the barbecue and play are free to everyone.
SPINNEROOS is here!
You’re young, you’re small and you’ve got the energy to burn. It’s time to join Spinneroos.
Spinneroos is simply the best introduction for kids into the world of Table Tennis. It is a chance for young boys and girls to learn the basics, get active, express themselves and create their own special moments with other Spinneroos.
Spinneroos invites all kids under the age of 10, no matter if they know the game or not, to participate in this fun and exciting new program launched by Table Tennis Australia. This official starter program will not only kick start a child’s passion for sport but will allow children to experience all the benefits of an active life including hand/eye coordination, increased mobility, building friendships and in general, just having a great time!
The Spinneroos program has been developed with leading Table Tennis coaches from across the country as well as industry experts in childhood development to ensure it is one of the best first experiences children have with the sport.
In weekly sessions, children will have the opportunity to explore the world of Table Tennis, learning how to hit a forehand and serve a ball in a safe and fun setting. The Spinneroos program has been designed to let children learn through playing and being active and creates a fun environment where the participants have the freedom to run, jump, laugh and be themselves.
Patrick Wuertz, Table Tennis Australia’s Program Coordinator is delighted to be launching Spinneroos in Australia.
Once signed up, all Spinneroos will receive a kit with everything they need to get started on their Table Tennis journey. This will include an exclusive Spinneroos shirt, a bat, balls and many more!
Bundaberg has been chosen to be one of the first clubs in the country to launch this new initiative and help kids develop a love for this sport. Places are limited, so make sure you contact Dave Delpratt at Bundaberg Table Tennis (firstname.lastname@example.org) or the Bundaberg TTA Facebook page to find out more, and visit https://www.spinneroos.com.au/home/ to secure your child’s place.
