The boys who have attended Tuesday lunchtime Handball Club have been doing great – we usually have about 12 boys turning up regularly which is enough to create S1 boys team.

It would be good to get a few more S1 boys to come along so that we can practice full games (7 v 7).

If you are interested then come along on Tuesdays Lunchtimes at 12.30pm in the Old Gym.

Games will be organised in 2015 for those boys who are attending regularly.

An after school club may also be available so keep a look out for the Club newsletter.
