Club News

New Season, New Start!

After an extended break we can’t wait to get back to regular training and match play!

The good news is that scheduled training sessions are due to re-start w/b 7th September 2020. Members have been notified by email with further details of session dates/times, together with the very important new requirements associated with staying safe and well with the COVID19 outbreak in mind.

Please review the email carefully and make sure that you have completed all of the requested actions in plenty of time for the first session. 

Franchise Trials

It’s also approaching time for County and Franchise Trials. A large number of Thunderbirds girls have sucessfully trialled for these academies in the past (see our 2020 HALL of FAME) so keep an eye on their Web pages, Instagram and Twitter feeds for details of how to take part.

We’ll update the News page with any further details in relation to training and competitive play as soon as they become available.
