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 dumfriessrc@gmail.com and sending in an entry fee of £30 per team, with proceeds destined for D&G Disability Sport.

Power switch off – Mon lunchtime

27 11 2015

The club are currently installing Solar Panels, to complete these works we need to switch all power off to allow this to happen.

Therefore we are advising you that on Monday 30th between 11am and 2pm there will be no power in the Sports Club. This will obviously cause some disruption to the booking system, door entry, squash courts, the treadmills, the lights, the heating and the hot water.

Everything should be back to normal by 2pm if not sooner but this will mean that the squash courts will be slightly cooler due to the lack of heat for this period. The club apologies for the inconvenience.

Sports Club Notice about the Car Park

15 11 2015

The Sports Club will be getting some work done on the rear roof from Sunday 15th November and as a consequence, this will have an impact on the rear car park.

The works should be completed within the week (weather dependent) but there will be a scaffold up against the building and this will reduce car parking spaces during the week.

The club would therefore ask all members to be extra cautious when parking their car.The scaffold company will dictate how much of the car park will be open. If possible please consider car sharing to reduce the volume of cars.

Please don’t park on the main road out of courtesy to our neighbours.

Many thanks for your consideration with this matter.
