Parwich Panoramic Five Fell Race


As usual the event can’t happen without the army of volunteer helpers on the night. If you are able to help, especially with marshalling the event, please contact Nia on 661


We are in great need of new wheels. We lost all of them last week and are still trying to find some. Does anybody know where you can get four new ones. Selector tyres might do us a deal. Four new players would do us better!

Tuesday League.
July 11 – Away – Whitworth Park.
A poor night in all respects. Not only did we not play well, but it chucked it down with rain. Harry and John B gave us a good start winning 21 – 11. This was countered by Sue and Clara losing 21 – 9. Rick and Edith came back from the dead, but just failed 20 – 21. Dawn and Dennis again tried really hard, in the end they had to succumb 21 – 8. Final score Whitworth 74, Parwich 58.
Although we had a poor game last week and this week we will hopefully not drop too many places down the league. No match next week so at least we can keep trying to find our wheels.
Next Match – Blank week.

Thursday League
July 13 – Home – Baslow – 1.45.
Strange match this week even though it was on our midden. You would have thought that with Tony and Clara winning 21 – 4 (Clara playing with her special laser guided new woods) that we were on to a good thing. Unfortunately one of our pairs lost 21 – 3. Game even. John H and Sue were 18 – 4 down and clawed their way back to lead 20 – 19. regrettably on the next end they went two down. 21 – 20 Baslow.
For once we really lost our way in the singles winning only one game out of six. The final result was Parwich 98, Baslow 122. Looking at things from an optimistic viewpoint we got three more points than last week! Perhaps what we should do is to bury a killer whale under our green which we can call upon when times get hard.
Next match – Home – Hathersage – 20 July – 1.45pm.

6.30pm – 7.30pm.
Don’t forget that on Mondays we are at Parsons Croft and boy do we need the practise. We actually saw a new person on the green last Monday! Hope he comes again this Monday.
PS. If you can’t make Mondays just let Tony (724) or John (455) know and we will arrange an alternative.

Football Update

Massive thanks to Phil Kirkham for purchasing a bargain line marker for a £20 donation to a local sports club and then spending a lot of time making it as ‘good as new’, and without any charge (only a pint of beer), parents of the Friday Football feel free to buy Phil a beer when you see him, he deserves it!

Big thanks to Charlie Jones for helping mark out the football pitch with our new marker! Great job Charlie…it looks amazing!

Friday Football – Children only, 5.30 start

It is 12 months ago since we started Friday Football, we actually started on 15 July 2016, and doesn’t time fly! I remember wondering if any children would actually turn up, and they did….

We continue to have a regular weekly turnout of 20+ children and usually 2-3 helpers (which I am eternally grateful to!).

We have recently purchased a line marker (thanks Phil) and line marking paint £70, probably enough to last a couple of years.

We are about to purchase some new balls as our existing balls are looking a bit tired, worn out and several are leaking.

Sunday Football – Older children and Adults, 6.30 start

We are still a little light on numbers; we normally get between 8-12 people playing. We need more….

5 a-side is great, but 4 a-side is very tough. We need 2 or 3 additional regulars. Come-on, dust off your trainers and get yourself down to the cricket pitch. It is great fun, good for your health and also good for our community spirit.

Hopefully see you on Sunday.

Thank you again to everyone for your support (parents, helpers, donators, Phil K and also the players).

We welcome everyone to come down and watch the children, see how much they have progressed and how much they are enjoying themselves!
