Jack Petchey Winner - September

Congratulations to Annalie Collins for being the Jack Petchey winner for September. Pictured right is Annalie receiving her certificate and cheque from Jack Kelly, erstwhile National Squad Director, who just happened to be visiting us last night.

Annalie's award was a recognition of her steady development of skills and quiet unassuming character which saw her enter her first competition last month, get entered into the wrong grade, get moved into the correct group and then despite all that beating many much more experienced club-mates. Well done, Annalie and well-deserved.

Nominations for the October winner are now open, eligible members are listed on the notice board.

The "Flog It!" team pays a visit

Brentwood School & Brentwood Trampoline Club were pleased to welcome the BBC's Flog It! team recently with it's presenter Paul Martin. This popular antiques programme regularly includes a segment on some item of historical interest in the local area. Their interest had been stimulated by the history article on our club's website which showed how a local man, Ted Blake, made significant contributions to the development of competitive trampolining. All being well the show, which should be broadcast next year, will show Tim Blake (Ted's son) being interviewed in the school's library and Hannah McCann and Scott Gregory being interviewed and also performing for Paul in the Courage Hall. Apparently one of Paul's fond memories of his school-days features the school trampoline on which he recalls doing somersaults. Pictured are Tim, Scott, Paul & Hannah.

Results from Easton Grading

We had a long day on Sunday with some high emotions at times but some decent results. Three winners were Sophie Banks, Jospeh Dulieu-Hasler and Kallum Sherlock, four third-placed were Jonathan Gibbs, Jamie Perry, Abbie Goldmsith & Kensie Sherlock (Kensie on zero final) and although not making a podium position, Emma Martin qualified to grade F. Georgia Tyrrell also got closer to qualifying with two new PBs. Not too bad from thirteen competing on the day. More details on our website here.
