Jumps Pit Now Up and Running At Knights Grange In Winsford
Coach Neil Templeman is delighted to see that the jumps pit is now up and
running at Knights Grange Track in Winsford. The picture above shows
the jumps pit as it was being built and in a couple of weeks when the
weather is nicer, there will be a photo of the completed runway and jumps
Templeman would personally like to thank Harry Evans (Club President) and
the local Council Vale Royal Borough Council for the development of the
runway and jumps pit at a cost of just under £15,000 which will be used
extensively by the club.
is delighted because it will save him lots of petrol money on travelling to
different clubs outside of the borough to train at proper facilities and
secondly he will be able to spend more time concentrating on younger
athletes and promote jumps even more.
Secondly, younger athletes will be able to see the UK number 1 in triple
jump for the under 17 age group training at the local track and it may
encourage other athletes to participate in jumps at the club.
again, Neil would like to thank the local council for all their efforts in
this development which will be a great platform to improve jumpers and to
introduce new athletes to jumps.
