Because of problems that developed earlier in the morning we ended up having to having to put the trampolines away at the same time as doing the general clearing up. 
We managed it on time thanks to valiant efforts by The Queen's Diamond Jubilee Centre employees, RSDA members and others.
Many thanks to all involved

Trampolining 3rd August

posted 29 Jun 2019, 12:27 by Bernard Purdy   [ updated 21 Jul 2019, 02:55 ]

The next RSDA trampolining session will be on August 3rd  2019.
Both trampolines will be used from 10.30am to 11.30am
The sessions have been moved to a slightly later time to make easier for those who want to have a swim first.
Participants are advised to wear either tracksuit bottoms or shorts rather than jeans and to remove shoes to avoid damage to the trampolines. They should wear socks to prevent injury to feet.
Also they should avoid jewellery and have any long hair tied back to prevent injury.

For insurance purposes we now keep a register of those taking part. Please ensure that your name is on the register before starting.
The calendar on this site will be updated as future dates are decided.

The Clem Griffiths Championship

Following the the reintroduction of The Club Championship this year we have now decided to bring back the Clem Griffiths Championship.
This championship originally started in 2011 in memory of Clem Griffiths, who was our chairman for a period of 16 years until his tragic death in 2010.
The idea of the championship is to encourage newer members to try different sports and have a go at competitions. It is only open to members who have joined in the last 5 years. 
The rules are attached.
