Photo: PETER MCDONALD SPORTS SHORTS Cricket takes guard A cricket development pro- gramme for junior players, organised by the Trentham Sports Centre Trust, is proving a popular initiat- ive. Based at the trust's indoor facility at Trentham Memorial Park, the pro- gramme will cater for 36 boys and girls, aged 10 to 12, who are already playing the game. The pilot programme, organised in conjunction with Junior Cricket Upper Hutt, is directed by Mark Borthwick, a qualified and experienced coach and teacher who will have the help of other specialist coaches to maintain a coach to player ratio of one to six throughout the course. The development pro- gramme began a fortnight ago and bookends the 2011-12 cricket season. The first part, 10 sessions of 90 minutes each, runs until October 12 with the final five classes running in February and March next year. Features in the develop- ment course include initial video assessment of skills, the development of train- ing programmes, monitor- ing of standards and identifying future targets. There is a clear emphasis on the skills of the game but there is also the explor- ing of the standards and values applying to the game as well as a session, run by Borthwick, for the parents of the children taking part. Duathlons are go A series of duathlon events, organised by the city's Acti- vation recreation group, will begin on Sunday at Trentham Memorial Park. The events, which offer a wide range of distances in the running and cycling discipline, are geared to encourage beginners of all ages and test the more experienced athletes. Three duathlons will take place this Sunday, and on October 9, from 9am. There is a modest entry fee and the chance to win a bike from the Bike Hut. For all the details on the course and the distances to choose from, including the special children's events, go to activation.org.nz. Memorial tourney may now go annual Final say: Petone's Ite Talagosa, left, and Upper Hutt's Terry Robbins fought out the inaugural Nina Alderson Memorial snooker tournament. A remembrance snooker competition held at the Upper Hutt Cosmopolitan Club is set to become an annual event. The Nina Alderson Memorial Snooker Tournament was successfully hosted at the Cossie the weekend before last. Nina Alderson died in 1998 and the idea of remembering her, and her love of snooker, in a posi- tive way went hand in hand with the Cossie Club's continuing support of the Cancer Society In a nice touch, all the tournament's players wore fuchsia-coloured polo shirts, Nina's favourite colour,as a further acknowledgment of her. It made a nice relaxing change from bow ties and waistcoats,'' event organiser and Nina's son, Paul says. Nina's husband Robert sponsored the tournament. He also made a donation to the Cancer Society. All three of their sons Paul, Gary and Stephen (and a grandson, Anthony) along with many of their friends played in the event. There was an Upper Hutt flavour to the final but not a fairytale local winner. The Cosmopolitan Club's Terry Robbins gave way, in the end, 3-2 to Ite Talagosa from Petone Working Men's Club.
