1st Place for Devon Games to Inspire
Teignbridge has secured 1st Place for the 2nd year in a row at the Devon Games to Inspire held on Saturday 14th June.
The volunteers and team managers have played such a huge part in our success, not to mention the competitors themselves. We cannot thank the local clubs, volunteers and schools enough.
We are particularly thankful to the PE teams from Teign Academy and South Dartmoor Community College. They have all gone the extra mile to support the Teignbridge Team this year and encourage their pupils to take part.
Thanks to Active Devon and all the organisers involved to hosting the event at Exeter University.
The Teignbridge medal wins were extraordinary. A few headlines include:
An unheard of 'Double Gold' title was presented to Ashmoor Hockey Club's Steve Dinnie, Alf Dinnie and Jess Kohler (team managers for Teignbridge hockey teams) as both the boys and girls Hockey Teams earn Gold Medals at the Games.
Newton Abbot Somersaults Coach and Teignbridge Team Manager Emma Vernau who has organised the Gymnastics teams for over 10 years for Teignbridge were awarded Gold Medals for the yr 3&4 mixed Gymnastics team.
Tennis Team Manager Robert Elver has been a dedicated volunteer with his brother Peter for Teignbridge since the Games began in 1999 and they proudly won Gold again at this years Games.
