May edition Paphos Post
It hasn't been the month we anticipated back in January . We were due to meet a team from Scotland coming over to play five matches against us. We were due to complete our mini league with three team in with a chance of winning the title. We were looking forward to two social evenings and a barbecue. However in the enforced lockdown the important thing is that as far as we know all of our players have remained safe from the virus.
We are now hoping that we will be given the go ahead to start again towards the end of May. In the mean time we have been encouraging players to keep their exercises going in their home. Once our sessions re commence our coaches will be putting us through rigorous paces to see who kept to doing their exercises and who were little lax in doing exercises!
We have recently been contacted by a 77 year old who asked if he could come and join our sessions. We are delighted to welcome older players and indeed we have in excess of 15 players over the age of 70. We make sure in our practice sessions we have a range of ages in each team so that we don't have a team of 50 year old competing against the older age groups. The aim always has been to make the sessions enjoyable. we dont want older players getting disheartened if they feel they cant keep up with younger players, We might add that some of out 70 plus players are fitter that some of the younger ones!
We are pleased to add leisure shirts to our range of kit and our Chairman and secretary proudly modelled the shirts just before the lockdown (see photo elsewhere on the site), We do have shirts available in all sizes!!
