Adventure Group
This month eight intrepid adventurers went indoor flying at Ifly, Manchester. We all thoroughly enjoyed it and have the photos, videos and certificates to prove it! Great instructor and staff at Ifly. They made us very welcome. Most of us took the option of 'flying high' ie: to the top of the chamber! We all gained @white fliers' status!

New Group Coming - PICKLEBALL
Pickleball is a recently developed sport that is growing in popularity especially among older players. It borrows elements from badminton (the court), tennis (the lower net) and table tennis (similar bats and a light plastic ball). The rules of Pickleball have been specially drafted to reduce aggression and to emphasise placement, positioning and tactics rather than strength and athleticism. Pickleball is an ideal recreation for those who have played any ball sport in the past and who enjoy a little bit of competitive sport without wishing to be over-exerted. It is normally played as doubles but singles are also popular. The full rules of the sport are available, with further background, by googling 'Pickleball wiki' and you may be interested to see a training video by clicking here or by googling 'Pickleball Martis'.

No experience is necessary as full coaching and demonstration sessions have been planned. If you are interested to join please email groups@​
