Frenchay Joint Clubs Sports Open Day 14th April.
Unfortunately, it was a dull, cold day, which possibly deterred a number of families from attending. However, those who supported the event enjoyed the opportunity to participate in a variety of sports, & also to appreciate the clubs available in the local area.
The event was started with a family fun run, organised by Just Run, a Frenchay based running club suitable for all abilities.
The other clubs offering taster sessions included, Frenchay Cricket Club, Downend & Frenchay Tennis Club & Bristol Golf Centre. Everyone was welcome to try the sports with no restriction to age or ability.
There have been new sports facilities developed over the last year at Hillside Gardens, where Rockleaze Football Club now play, & at Shaftesbury Park, new home to Dings Crusaders Rugby Club. Both these sites were open to the public on the Open day. Frenchay Tennis Club will also be moving to their new courts on the old hospital site in due course.
DFTC counted 90 visitors, with 52 new comers. Chris & Josh, assisted by their helpers, led the tennis on court, while Lesley, & her team of volunteers provided refreshments & club information.
