TS5C relies completely on the generosity of local businesses and individuals to operate.
Great Britain Under 18 Handball team headed off to Portugal during half term to participate in The Handleca Cup in preparation for the European qualifiers in Bulgaria later this summer.
Bertie Kelly, Somerset’s TS5C sponsored Table Tennis player competed at the Somerset County Table Tennis Championships over the weekend of February 1st and 2nd. This event was the largest and most ambitious table tennis tournament ever held in Somerset
The new season started in October and regional matches for both under 19 and senior leagues along with National Academy training camps have filled each weekend . Stroud have had some tough games but are currently sitting top of the table despite injury frustrations throughout the team.
Over the last year I have continued to be involved with the England u18 programme where we finished our season at the European championships in Holland coming 4th.
I have been invited to train with the u21's squad where I hope to be selected for the junior world cup next year.
14 year old Grace Fielder is a member of Taunton Athletics Club and she trains with The Combined Events Squad.

Ed plays for Wimbledon HC, who are sitting in second place in the Premier League. He is currently top goalscorer with 16 goals after 9 games. He is training with Great Britain Hockey and aiming towards the Olympics. He recently visited my prep school in Somerset, All Hallows’ to run a coaching clinic and talk to the current ambitious hockey players.
Richard started playing handball for Somerset aged 15, and within 8 months was selected to play for southwest England. A year later Richard was chosen to represent Great Britain in the European Open in Gothenburg, Sweden, playing against the likes of Russia and Sweden and scoring some goals! He continues to represent Somerset and the southwest and is hoping for another GB call up soon.
My big news is that I've been added to the Swim England Performance squad for the 2019/20 season. This selection follows performances in the summer, where I became National Champion in the 400m individual medley at the British Summer Nationals.
Thank you TS5C for your continued support of Jamie’s Racing career. We really appreciate it.
After a family loss Jamie had taken a bit of a break from racing and now he is recovering from a bout of the flu. It’s taken it out of him but he’s hoping to get back to racing this week. Next year is going to be an interesting one!
