Posted by Coman Communications on July 24, 2012

The Women’s Empowerment Project is encouraging women to get moving over the summer.

They also have a six week tennis course for adults when they join the club – a temporary membership offer for eight weeks will cost £40.  The next course starts on 31 July at 7.00pm to 8.30pm.

Junior summer holiday membership costs just £10 and there are free junior club sessions from 4.30pm to 6.30pm.

Six achieve swimming success

Posted by Coman Communications on July 23, 2012

Six women took part in The Women’s Empowerment Project Make a Move initiative and learnt to swim.   The free course, supported by the People’s Health Trust, taught participants how to swim a width unaided.    One participant said they were now looking forward to the summer holidays, and instead of watching their children and family in the water, they would be able to join them.
