The turnout at the latest Wessex League match on 3rd July was higher than previous matches, particularly in the Quadkids event. However, we are still some way off our limit of ten boys and ten girls in the competition. Well done to Hollie Stonier, Matilde Ward, Olivia Abel, Nathaniel Boot and Oscar Ewen Mathews for their participation at the weekend. We hope you enjoyed the competition, and will compete again in the Isle of Wight. The coach and ferry transport is part for by the club and parents and spectators will only have to pay £8 for the trip; rather a cheap cost for a day out!

BAC were only able to field 3 out of the 6 relay teams, but overall things seem to be moving in the right direction and hopefully more athletes, with the support of their parents or guardians, will participate in these league competitions.

Apologies for any omissions and thanks as usual to officials, helpers and coaches.
