Based on our new popular format introduced early last year which includes a training camp run by Shaun Marples our Pathway and Development Manager and tournament run by our resident organiser and referee Dave Cochrane we have the Sheffield Para Open this weekend.
We are lucky to hold this event in the prestigious English Institute of Sport which is where our performance squad and coaching team are based full time.
The venue also boasts amazing facilities used by numerous international athletes including world champion boxer Anthony Joshua.
For this weekend we have another good entry of 40 athletes of all standards including a few new members.
Some of our amazing performance squad have entered including :
World number 12 in class 9 Ashley Facey
World number 6 in class 10 Kim Daybell
We also have many pathway and development squad athletes looking to get good experience from the performance squad athletes who’ll be going all out to challenge them such as Dan Bullen in class 5, Lucie Bouron in class 3, Cellan Hall in class 5, Fliss Pickard and Connor McAdam in class 6, Ryan Henry in class 8, Dylan Tynan in class 9 and Shae Thakker with Jack Stockdale in class 10.
We look forward to seeing the athletes working hard on Saturday at the training camp and putting their skills into practice at the tournament !!!
