Is your training slipping? Is your slipping showing? Eight weeks of term have gone and some of you who religiously embarked on training programmes at the beginning of the term, will now, no doubt, be wondering what happened to your resolve. Well, take heart; it isn't unusual and we don't mind too much. In fact, it would help us a lot if you could come and tell us why your resolve slipped. We can then perhaps help you to re-start. Remember, with exams arriving mid-year, your physical well-being is important and as we have so often said: If you do just the physiological minimum of activity; three twenty-minute sessions per week, then you can only benefit.

Have you tried learning badminton? Some have and have progressed to the social badminton programme on Tuesdays 12 - 2pm. So, for beginners, and we have also spotted a few begin-againers, be in, on Tuesday 10 - 11 am and Friday 10 - 11 and 11 - 12.

News of the long room.....As you are probably aware, we have had big problems with the nets in the long room. Well, we are now close to a new tracking system, which is both, we hope, idiot-proof and student-proof (flattery will get you everywhere). However, please don't try to pull the nets back yet. In particular, people who are itching to use the new basketball backboards down there. You can use them as soon as the tracking system is working.

Beginners suqash lessons for this term will soon be coming to an end, so get your name down for Term II.
