This week PASC will host the Armagh Championships at Cascades for the last time. Next time, we’ll be in the new South Lakes Leisure Centre! We look forward to welcoming Armagh, Lurgan and Newry to Portadown. With 4 clubs competing, it’ll be a busy gala so we’ll be needing lots of parent volunteers on the day to help with timekeeping and catering. Girls warm up will be 8.15 am, followed by the boys at 8.30 am. Thanks to all our sponsors who have made this event possible. Please show them your appreciation by supporting these businesses all year round.
