CLUB NEWS: Kesgrave feature in local magazine

Due to the Kesgrave Panther’s success in the recent British Team Competitions they were honoured with the front page of the local In Touch Magazine.

This is distributed to every house within the club’s main catchment area of Kesgarve and Rushmere.

Included was a report inside and mention of the successful Monday club night training sessions, open to all new comers.

In another freely distributed local magazine – “Kesgrave News” (that also has an online version) there was a nice feature on page 19 of the July edition. It can be seen here:

The article mentioned that the Panthers had held the Under 10 team title for 7 consecutive years and also retained the Under 13 title. Also that the veterans team reaching their final as well.

The Under 10 team British event has been a highlight of the clubs success over recent years and has been something that many of the new youngsters starting out in the sport have been inspired by.

Hopefully the powers that be will see sense with their bizarre suggestion of scrapping a competition, that has helped turn a small club into one now recognised as having possibly the best Junior memberships in the country.

With this years event needing a run off with Poole, and two years ago, the team finding themselves several points behind at the halfway stage, it has certainly not been easy, as may be suggested by this fantastic run of consecutive wins.
