Upper Hutt Leader : September 21st 2011
52 UPPER HUTT LEADER, SEPTEMBER 21, 2011 Dave Workman Clubs & Communities Activator firstname.lastname@example.org 027 213 7572 Mike Mercer Schools Activator email@example.com 027 213 7583 Activation Team tel: 04 527 2113 UPPER HUTT CITY ACTIVE RECREATION Pinehaven Tennis Club New Surface! RWC 2011 - Schools Thanks to the persistence and tireless work of the club President, Barry Yandle, Pinehaven Tennis Club is proud to show off the great new playing surface at the club's four courts. Barry took on this arduous project and saw it through from start to its completion of which the club acknowledges and appreciates. The old court surface had served the club well over the years but due to various factors the courts were showing their age, so the decision was made to go ahead with replacing them. Funding the resurface came purely from club resources, enabling the club to cover the cost of the courts itself. The project proved challenging at times; weather, contractor constraints and unexpected events such as a tree falling and ruining fencing and the courts just prior to the new surface being laid! Despite the hiccups, the job was completed and the new courts will serve the club well for a number of years to come. The courts are a prominent blue colour, quite noticeable from the road; the colour highlights tennis balls when play is in progress, especially when under lights at night. The new surface provides more stability for members, as the surface no longer feels too slippery when wet, a bonus for those eager to keep their tennis skills up over winter or when a bit wet. Why not come down and try out our new surface for yourself! Pinehaven Tennis club is known for its friendliness as we cater for the whole family so contact us, and make this summer a fun one! Visit www.pinehaventennis.org for more info on how to join the club. The 2011 Rugby World Cup seems to have dominated New Zealand sports news for the past few months and locally in Upper Hutt, our schools sports programmes have also been drastically impacted. There have been a number of curriculum resources put into schools by the New Zealand Rugby Union and every primary school in Upper Hutt is using these in some way; either through adopting countries competing in the tournament and learning about them in class, using Rugby modules in physical education classes, studying nutrition and healthy lifestyles and even lesson plans for English, Science, Mathematics and Te Reo Maori have been developed for teachers to utilize. A large scale Rippa Rugby World Cup Tournament is happening on the 4th October at Trentham Memorial Park for all our year 3 -- 6 students. Each school will put forward two teams (one year 3/4 and one year 5/6) to play in a World Cup draw tournament. Countries were drawn out of a hat and the following teams have been decided. Birchville -- Argentina Oxford Crescent -- Scotland and South Africa Totara Park -- France Pinehaven -- Tonga and Italy Maoribank -- Namibia Silverstream -- Australia and USA Plateau -- Wales Mangaroa -- Ireland Upper Hutt -- England Trentham -- Canada and Japan St Joseph's -- Fiji Tawai --Georgia St Brendan's -- Samoa Tui Glen -- Russia Fraser Crescent -- New Zealand Koraunui - Romania The event will take place during the school day and also feature community-wide elements such as lunch time performances from several ethnic groups. The Fig Tree Café will be on hand to supply food and drinks for participants and spectators alike, and the H20 Xtream Pelican and Xtream Activation Trailer will be on hand to keep everyone entertained during the breaks. Over the past few months Upper Hutt Rugby Club has been delivering a coaching programme into our primary schools to accompany this event. Students have been taught a range of large ball, locomotor and game-based skills using Rugby as the mechanism for learning to occur. The club has also worked with classroom teachers to ensure in the future they can deliver similar lessons. So far nine schools have undergone the module and a further four will do so over the next month, totalling 3500 students participating in the project across Upper Hutt. This is a fantastic achievement for our local community and shows how we are embracing the spirit of our nations' largest sporting event. It enhances the opportunities for our young people to get active and has been made possible through the collaboration of Activation, Upper Hutt City Council, Upper Hutt Rugby Club, Kiwisport and The Infnity Foundation.
