Running in Horsham is growing rapidly with learn to run classes proving popular during the summer. The group of Allan, Jessica, Janet, Rachel, Ian and Jags recently completed the Horsham Parkrun after ten hard weeks of training. Jessica and Allan both thoroughly enjoyed the course and are now running a few times a week. Jessica quoted ‘I am shocked at how much progress I have made, it’s a lot of fun and I want to continue improving myself’.
What a perfect day of baseball under the Summer sun. All three diamonds were heaving, teams screaming and bats cracking out the thrilling dot-dot-dash of home runs when Guildford came a-calling on the 4th of July. The U15 diamond was hot as a grill all day. Guildford’s aggressive Mavericks leapt to an early 5-run lead. Lights-out pitching from Mojo Boarer kept the Mavs from getting any traction at the dish. Excellent fielding from Olivia Laking meant that we quickly got back to batting. Horsham battled and pulled ahead, both Dan “Thief” Cannons and T-Bone Sullivan beating the leather off the ball.
Shipley FC is about to set up its first “Walking Football” campaign at its pitch in Shipley starting Tuesday morning 7th of July. They would like as many people as possible within the District to know about this new activity. This new version of the sport is open to people of all ages not set up physically anymore to run around, but still would love to kick a ball and just need a gentle way to enjoy full fitness.

Thanks so much to all of the parents that introduced themselves at the Snak Shak and were willing to just get in there and help out. If we get that sort of help every week we’ll be in great shape for the rest of the season.
