Welcome to the Delph and Denshaw Team Page
2019 saw another really excellent performance by team D&D. For a second year running this included 6 shields – this time it was Cricket, Junior and Senior Badminton, Tag Rugby, Rounders and Junior Swimming! Accompanied by another excellent overall haul of over 200 medals of which 75% were gold and silver. It seems a long time ago now but hats-off to all those who worked so hard in training to make this happen – the athletes, players and coaches. Really well done!
A very warm welcome to those who get their D&D “blue” for the 1st time this year. It’s great fun to take part – you can try out as many sports as you’d like to attempt. The 2020 cancellation, continuing worries over Covid and the addition of Lees will all mean some changes which in turn may require a more flexible approach by athletes, players and coaches alike. We will all have to work even harder to maintain the excellent performances achieved by team D&D in recent years. Please come along and “get stuck-in”.
You can register on line, or you can download a registration form from the SVO website. Registration can also be made before the start of training sessions. One registration gives access to all the athletics and sports events and training
Training for most sports will start in the week commencing Sunday 25 July 2021 and run until the main events are held, beginning on the 11th of September. Training is held at various locations including Delph School and Delph Cricket Club – for full details see the training schedule (insert link). It is anticipated that you may not be able to make every session over the summer due to holiday commitments, etc. Just let the coaches know when you plan to be away. Any changes to the schedule will be notified via Facebook and Twitter
