The August Draw of The 200 Club took place during the E&A 35+ Championships held at the KLI Watersi Club in Ravenna, Italy last week. The video is in two parts…..sorry.
There were 147 “Balls in the Bag”, an increase of 12 compared to the July draw. A big thank you to the new participants.
The great news is that there will be at least 156 tickets for the September draw. We can get this to 200 so please ask your friends to support us.
In August there were a number of Development Days held and an U14 Training and Assessment camp at PWTC.
