Individuals and teams of 5 people upwards are invited to join in. Amanda Creedon-Bass from the Sports Club said “The emphasis is on a fun few hours of activities which will give an opportunity to have a go at a variety of sports; netball, football, tennis, cricket, and hockey plus an obstacle course with prizes for the winning team and as importantly the best-dressed team. No experience is necessary, just bring your trainers and your friends.”

Sandra Proudfoot, Head of Delegation for the Special Olympics Team, said on behalf of Dumfries and Galloway Disability Sport that “it is great that the club are supporting us as a charity. We hope that the inspiration of the Rio Olympics and Team GB will inspire a few people to have a go and try some new activities. Appropriately the inspiration of the Paralympics for those we help will be starting in Rio the following Wednesday”.

Entries to the “Trainers On” event can be made by emailing and sending in an entry fee of £30 per team, with proceeds destined for D&G Disability Sport.

You will have 14 days from the LTA contact to make payment, if payment is not made someone else in the club will automatically get the opportunity of purchasing the tickets. You should therefore ensure that the LTA details for you which you should be able to access on the LTA website are correct and up to date including your address and email address.
