As we enter another lockdown and all golf is canceled we thought it would be great to bring Team Hampshire together during this time.
With thanks to David Matthews and his creative spark we’ve got together and created Hampshire Golf Active7.
The format is really simple, run, walk or cycle 7k a week throughout lockdown to improve fitness, stay competitive and get Team Hampshire ready for the 2021 season.
In Week 1 the challenge is just to do the 7km and submit results including an indication of your 1km time (Run/Walk) so we can form two teams starting in week 2 to make things a little more competitive and fun.
All the details are outlined on the PDF below with everything operating through the SPOND platform each week.
The event is open for all players, parents/guardians, coaches and managers to get involved no matter your ability or fitness.
It will be great if you can join us and if you have any questions let us know!
All the best and let’s get ready for a cracking 2021 season in style and have some fun during lockdown!
Hampshire Lockdown Order of Merit 2020
Following on from the Hampshire Stay Home Stay Safe Challenges we’ve put together a new challenge for all Hampshire Squad players to play in on a weekly basis starting June 20th 2020.
We’re running a Hampshire Lockdown Order of Merit so players can still compete against others within the county not only in their age group but also in an all ages Top 10.
The format is really simple and will operate in the following way:
Enter via your Hampshire Squad What’s App group or email if you don’t have access by simply declaring the day before you play date/course/playing partner before you play. If possible play with another Hampshire Junior or Adult
Play the round and submit your completed scorecard via What’s App or Email by attaching a photo or screenshot of the card along with confirmation of score (Nett and Gross)
All age group results will be shared via Hampshire Facebook and What’s app as well as an overall Order of Merit.
We hope this will be a great competitive addition to the players golfing experience and provide some extra motivation to improve their game playing against the best players in Hampshire.
