Dorset pair are England Golf Trust champions

Posted on by

first_img A pair of Dorset women golfers have won the national England Golf Trust stableford competition, which has raised over £5000 to support young people who need financial help to play the game.Sarah Holt and Sarah Lethbridge, from Sherborne (image © Leaderboard Photography), teamed up to score 47 points in the betterball final at King’s Norton Golf Club, Worcestershire.They won by two points from the team from Belton Woods, Lincolnshire, who took second place on countback from Redditch, Worcestershire. Fourth place went to Perranporth, Cornwall, on 41 points, also securing their spot on countback.The competition was designed to raise funds for the Trust which provides grants and bursaries for young men and women in education or aged up to 21. Over 100 clubs entered the competition, which began with a club qualifying round, and around 80 more also made donations to the Trust.Trustee Ian Watkins commented: “The competition and the support we have received has been brilliant. We’ve raised just over £5000 from entry fees and donations and that means around 30 grants for young people.”Sarah Holt, who plays off 16 (pictured left) said: “We’re absolutely delighted to win – and stunned! We didn’t really get into any trouble, but if one of us did the other scored well. We just dovetailed.”Sherborne are regular supporters of the Trust and Sarah Lethbridge, a 22-handicapper, added: “If raising money helps young people stay in golf and gets more people playing golf, it has to be good.”She took up golf about three years ago and says: “It keeps me sane! I’m a chef and I work very long hours, so golf gets me out in the fresh air and makes me shut off from my job.”Click here for more information about the England Golf Trust 17 Aug 2016 Dorset pair are England Golf Trust champions last_img read more

That list was headed by Slovenia’s Pia Babik, 15, who capped a tremendous year by winning last week’s Girls’ Amateur Championship at Panmure. The other four players who earned a place by that route were France’s Lucy Malchirand, Italians Benedetta Moresco and Alessia Nobilio and Anne Normann from Denmark.Fuller, 17, from Roehampton, and Humphreys, 17, from Stoke by Nayland, were both selected as wild card picks by European captain Mickey Walker.

I feel sure that all the girls participating in the PJSC will feel the same.“Finally, on behalf of the European team, I would like to say a big thank you to John Solheim and his family for their vision and generosity in creating this wonderful match between the very best young players from the two continents.”“The depth of talent on Mickey Walker’s team is very impressive and promises to create some exciting and memorable moments at Gleneagles”, responded Solheim, PING Chairman and CEO.“It is wonderful to see six countries represented. It speaks to the wide appeal of the game and is a testament to the golf organisations within each country that have committed to developing such talented young ladies.”This year’s PING Junior Solheim Cup is to be played over the King’s course at Gleneagles, on Tuesday September 10 and Wednesday September 11, immediately ahead of the Solheim Cup which starts on the resort’s PGA Centenary course on Friday September 13.European Squad for PING Junior Solheim Cup:Pia Babnik (SLO)Lucie Malchirand (FRA)Benedetta Moresco (ITA)Alessia Nobilio (ITA)Mimi Rhodes (ENG)Anne Norman (DEN)Annabell Fuller (ENG)Lily May Humphreys (ENG)Hannah Darling (SCO)Amalie Leth-Nissen (DEN)Lilas Pintheir (FRA)Paula Schulz-Hanßen (GER) 20 Aug 2019 England trio named in European squad for PING Junior Solheim Cup last_img read more

Phoenix Rising School’s Friday Workshops Bring Real World Skills, and Joy,…

Posted on by

first_imgFacebook23Tweet0Pin0Submitted by Phoenix Rising School“It is a problem that so many children love learning and hate school,” says Nick Gillon, The Phoenix Rising School’s Education Director. “It’s a problem when rich, rigorous, relevant and engaging experiences have become the exception rather than the norm.” At heart, he says, the issue is one of equating ‘learning’ with ‘schooling’, and academic schooling at that.But learning encompasses many other skills which are applicable in everyday life, which is why every Friday, Phoenix students from kindergarten through 6th grade get the chance to participate in workshops that run the gamut from crochet to canning, bmx bikes to propulsion science, and acrogym to candle making. The result is enthusiasm, new skills, pride in their work and – dare we say it? – joy.“I don’t know many schools that make homemade spaghetti, bike ride, weave, do pickling and lots of other things,” says Pyrenees, age ten. “This way kids can learn about things that they love,” explains Chatalain, also age ten. “Sometimes if you just get assigned something, you don’t want to be there. When you can choose it, you can easily feel like, ‘I love this because I chose it and I knew what I wanted to do.’”Students find that the skills they pick up in workshops transfer nicely to the rest of their lives. “If you didn’t know how to ride a bike and you took the biking workshop, you would know how to do that skill,” says Helen, a third grader. “And cooking, that’s something we can use every day.”For teachers, workshops offer a chance to teach a subject they’re passionate about. “I get to choose something that I’m really interested in, so it’s not like actually working because I have so much fun,” says 3rd and 4th grade teacher Megan Moskwa, who has taught canning, soap making, candle making and more.“Seeing kids get excited about making blackberry jam really makes my day,” Audrey Goodwin-Arpin concurs. Four days a week she teaches K-1, but on Fridays she has offered acrogym, crochet, jewelry making, knitting and most recently, cooking. “If I like something and I do it in my own life, I transfer that passion to them,” she says.Students and teachers also get an opportunity to mix with people they wouldn’t normally see. According to Miles, a first grader, “You can get to know other people better.” The different grouping of students add to the feeling of a village, says Audrey. “When I see the students outside at recess, I’ve already been their teacher. There’s a different level of respect and a feeling that we’re responsible for all of them, not just the ones in our class. It’s also a way to keep track of the ones that I’ve already had that have moved on from my class.”Here are some of the workshops that have been taught at Phoenix Rising over the last three years:bmx bikesartfairy housescandle makingsoccercookingsurvival skillsacrogymadvanced electronicssoap makingweavingKorean languagepuppetspianotheaterpotterycartoonjournalismjewelry makingimprovsinginglamp makingcreative dramagardeningfiber artsliving historydanceschool beautifulrace carswater colorcarpentryhandbuilt potteryanimepropulsion scienceoutdoor educationdigital photo and videolast_img read more

MS Dhoni books his spot in Gavaskar’s top choices for T20 World Cup next…

Posted on by

first_imgAdvertisement The veteran wicketkeeper MS Dhoni has been named in Sunil Gavaskar’s preferred choice XI as the primary keeper of the T20 World Cup next year in Australia. The Indian legendary Sunil Gavaskar previously mentioned that the Indian team management should look beyond MS Dhoni, further adding that time has come to “look beyond Mahendra Singh Dhoni” and invest in youth for the upcoming tournaments. With, Rishabh Pant not been able to grab his opportunities, MS remains as a “top-choice” going into the international stage next year according to the legend.Advertisement When questioned whether Dhoni should be chosen for the upcoming Bangladesh series, Gavaskar strongly declined to that.Advertisement “No, we need to look beyond. Mahendra Singh Dhoni at least doesn’t figure in my team. If you are talking about the T20 World Cup, I will certainly think about Rishabh Pant,” Gavaskar said in an interview.And as for the youngster Pant, Gavaskar reckons, Sanju should be considered ahead of Rishabh Pant.Advertisement “If I need to have an alternate option, then I will think of Sanju Samson because Sanju is a good ‘keeper as well as a good batsman.”“If I have to think of the T20 World Cup, I would think about youth as we need to look forward. Dhoni has made great contribution to Indian cricket but it’s now time to look beyond him,” the iconic batsman stated earlier.On another interview on the ‘India Today’ channel, Gavaskar was spotted saying: “I think he (Dhoni) should be going without being pushed out.”MS Dhoni, is yet to announce his international retirement and the current selection committee has indicated that the matter shouldn’t be looked behind.  Advertisementlast_img read more
