Top coach at Ballyvally

BALLYVALLY archers have just experienced a four day archery coaching course led by top British coach, Mrs Maggie Squires.

She is not only one of the top British coaches but has had a lot of experience shooting at International level over the past 15-20 years.

She was supported by Frank Mulligan, chairman and main coach in the club and Peter Mulligan, who himself has a lot of international experience and who also has won two gold medals in Austria and Croatia at World Championship level.

The 60 sessions provided were open to all members - the youngest archer coached was just over three years of age. Ballyvally is preparing for the future!

Most of the sessions were held in Banbridge leisure Centre and some at Loughbrickland.

CASTLEWELLAN TOURNAMENT - Ballyvally’s next big shoot will be in Castlewellan Forest Park. The course will be set out on Saturday February 11, starting at 10.30am.

All members who are available to help on next Saturday morning are asked to come along - many hands make light work!
