|Going into the Summer |
306 522-1649 or firstname.lastname@example.org
The 2014-2015 Curling season will begin in October and now is the time to join the Tartan. There are leagues for new and returning curlers. If you are interested in curling on either a temporary or full-time basis there is plenty of time to join. We are thinking of expanding the Young Adult Curling to Friday evening for people who have to get up up early Wednesdays. Let us know what you think. Call us at 306 522-1649 or send an email to email@example.com.
This spring we have unearthed the post holes for setting up badminton nets and it happens that we have a few posts. We are also looking at a game called Pickle Ball which is one of the fasted growing sports south of the border and uses courts that are very similar to badminton courts. We are looking into seeing if our floor is suitable for that game. Watch for up dates.
|We are moving into a new phase at the Tartan. The equipment has arrived and we will shortly be announcing something completely different for the summer season. Cart Hockey will have teams of four or five using leg driven carts called EZY Roller Pros. We're in the developing stage right now, working out the rules and how the teams should be made up but we will be up and running very soon.|
|Pickleball comes to the Tartan|
| In conjunction with the Pickleball Saskatchewan the Tartan is pleased to offer courts for play. Despite its unusual name Pickleball is one of the most rapidly growing sports in North America. While having its own rules and equipment it has similarities to tennis, badminton and table tennis. The court is the same size as a badminton court with a slight difference in the size of the space before the net. It can be played both singly and as doubles. The ball is perforated in a style similar to the wiffle ball with indoor and out door variations. The paddles are some what like table tennis ones except with longer handles and a larger striking area.|
We welcome all levels of players, from novice to experienced. We have some paddles available for those who just want to try the game without out
Time of play currently will be:
Mondays at 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm
Tuesdays and Thursdays at 10:00 am to 12:00 pm and 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm.
Other booking times may be arranged by contacting the Tartan at 306 522-1649 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org
We will also be conducting clinics for new players.
The sessions are 2 hours during which it is possible to play several games and because we are interested in growing the sport the cost is low at $5.00 per person or $20.00 for a court rental outside of the above times. A special rate of $3.00 a session is available of members of the Pickleball Regina. We offer cards with ten sessions on them for the above posted times. We also have membership forms for those who would like to join Pickleball Regina.
|The Men's Southerns are coming to the Tartan|
|The Tartan will be hosting the Men's Southerns January 15 - 18. It has been quite awhile since we last had them, so many of you haven't had a chance to be part of them. All sorts of help will be needed so keep a place in your calendar open.|
|As you've probably noticed the Tartan is an older building and lacks some of the features modern public buildings offer. Among these are washrooms accessible to all people. I was bemoaning this one day to Bob Bymoen, the president, and Roseann Strelezki, the treasurer, of our neighbour the SGEU because I knew I had some people coming in for whom the lack of accessibility was a real impediment to their participation in an event at the rink. Immediately they said they would see what they could do and a little while later I received a call saying we could have access to their building during our event. Shane Osberg, their director of Disability Management Services arranged everything for us and made the event that much better because more people could participate. A big thank you for their kindness.|
