Your coaches will soon be asking you if you'd like to represent the club by competing in this competition, and it's a great opportunity to compete against other athletes from all over the UK in a really good venue. Entry is free but the club is only able to put forward one athlete for each event in each age group, so places are strictly limited, and places must be confirmed by 4th June.
Do we have any aspiring pool players in the club? The annual County Pool Competition will be held at Lambton Street Youth Centre, Sunderland, in accordance with COVID-19 safety guidelines, on the 27th May 2021.
This competition is open to any young person in the club - if you'd like to enter, please email me for an entry form. There is a £10 club entry fee but this is only payable once, so if several people wanted to enter, the cost could be shared - there is a limit of two players per age group:-
Next up they have a "Britain's Fittest Teen Competition!"
Prior to lockdown NABGC had hoped to start their new ‘Britain's Fittest Teen’. Unfortunately that had to be put on hold due to lockdown. Now however, they are re-launching this event.
They are pleased to say that this will be taking place after the summer. For more information on this, please click on this link or check out the promotional video
