Another Successful Trip

Just back from Argentina, we are pleased to report a great time had by all.  Our group of 9 all had fun in the sun and everyone improved their game.  Roll on next year!

We also spent some time visiting other facilities and estancias, which would cater for clients who maybe want to pamper themselves a bit more.  We visited the Hurlingham Club in Buenos Aires as well as various places in Pilar.  Anyone wanting more details should contact the club, thom@thombell.co.uk or 07831 365194.

ARGENTINA TRIP 2010

Due to popular demand we are running another trip to La Mariposa, in Argentina this winter.  Last years trip was a great success with all the students improving their standard of play, whilst having great fun at the same time.  As a result, we are looking at having a fully booked trip this year, so it will be first come first served if you want to join us.

We will be going on Friday 22 January for up to 2 weeks.  It is recommended you go for at least 10 days to get the most benefit, but it is entirely up to you.  A week, 2 weeks or longer, is fine.

If you want to book a place or get details please contact myself, gillian@glockhart.wanadoo.co.uk or thom@thombell.co.uk, or call thom on 07831 365194. 

 **Deposit required to hold a place.

Beginners League Round 2

Just back from exams and holidays, all the students were up for this 2nd round in the league.  Having not played for a few weeks, some were a bit out of practice!  The teams -

Aberdeen - Clare, Jenni, Katie

Stirling - Caroline, Colette, Miranda

St Andrews - Emily G, Aliana, Michael

The round robin started with Stirling V St Andrews, with St Andrews winning well, scoring 6 goals to Stirling's 0!  St Andrews stayed on to take victory again over Aberdeen, scoring another 6 goals, although Aberdeen managed to get 1 back.  The play was not all one sided as the scores reflect.  In both games,  St Andrews gave away many penalties because of too much fouling. 

The last game was Stirling V Aberdeen and a tough match, as both teams badly wanted victory to gain 2nd place in the league.  The score was still 0 - 0, up until the last minute, when Miranda from Stirling scored the winning goal for her team.

Good fun was had by all and play was much better than the first round, proving that the league is a great idea to bring people on with their play.  Who knows what will happen in the next round, as I am sure Aberdeen and Stirling will be out to beat St Andrews!

St Andrews University Mini Tournament

It is the end of exams for the students, so we decided to run a mini tournament on the beach for some of the students.  Despite the bitter cold day, 12 students came along to compete against each other in 4 teams.  A couple of the teams are heading off to the National Championships next month, so this was good to practice playing together. 

The teams were -

Team 1 - Millie Bagnall, Alex Reid, Rob Fett

Team 2 - Dani Ward, Michael Peikos, Joely Denkinger

Team 3 - Flo Barrow, Chloe Bernstein, Chris Hanson 

Team 4 - Ed Bellamy, Elizabeth Humphries, Alex Douglas

We started with team 2 v 3, with a convincing win for team 3.  In the second round team 1 had a tougher time but came away victors over team 4.

Both teams 3 and 1 were up for the final, determined to take the trophy.  Millie, Alex and Rob fought hard, but unfortunately the experience of Flo was too much and she led her team to victory.

Good fun was had by all and we enjoyed a bbq and a few drinks after before the snow and rain started!!!
