The first week of the school holidays saw the running of the BCU Winter Sports Camp for 2016.
A record number of 48 children from as far away as the Gold Coast and the Central Coast descended on Maclean for the largest-attended winter sports camp in its history, coach Alan Jurd said.
“All the kids enjoyed fun physical activity with Vanessa Bates (Yamba 24/7 gym), as well as learning how to make protein balls, futsal at the Maclean Indoor Sports Centre, healthy eating and sustainable choices with Gina Lopez (Yamba Farmers market), and, of course, plenty of tennis,” he said.
“Even the wet weather couldn’t dampen spirits on the Tuesday, with so many fun indoor activities on offer, including the famous BCU colouring-in competition run by Issy McLeod.
“All of the coaches, including Braden Lewis, Philippa Hayman and Issy and Molly McLeod, commented on the kids’ enthusiasm and wonderful behaviour throughout the camp.”
Winner of the prestigious Camp Wombat’ was Nic Farrell from Gosford, in a hard fought win over defending champ Jarryd Richards, 6-4.
Coach Jurd said, “It has been so good having the support of the Banana Coast Credit Union, as the camps grow from strength to strength.”
The last camp for the year will be in the first week of the September/October holidays.

In the BCU team championships, Yellow Peril took out the title.
