Ba­ton twirlers to com­pete in in­ter­na­tional event

Bray People - - BRAY NOTEBOOK -

THE BRAY Modernettes ba­ton twirlers are set­ting off on Thurs­day, March 28, to Bournemouth in south­east Eng­land to com­pete in in­ter­na­tional cham­pi­onships there.

The cham­pi­onship com­pe­ti­tions are held over a four-day pe­riod, which con­sists of 15 other clubs through­out Ire­land and the UK.

This is a great chance for the chil­dren to show their abil­i­ties on an in­ter­na­tional level.

They will be en­ter­ing in in­di­vid­ual, solo rou­tines and team events. ‘We are at the moment train­ing very hard and chil­dren are do­ing so well,’ said coach and founder Sinéad Flana­gan.

They will then go to Mount­mel­lick in Co Laois for an­other com­pe­ti­tion in April.

The club has been in ex­is­tence for 14 months now. More than 60 chil­dren are trained in three sep­a­rate classes.
