Brendon Reading Walker’s Trophy

The Tigers are very excited that Australian Olympic Race Walker and Club Record Holder Brendon Reading has kindly donated a new perpetual trophy to Ginninderra this season.

The Club is very excited to see our past Little Athletes who have gone onto bigger and better things still supporting the next generation of athletes at Ginninderra.

Brendon's trophy will be awarded to the athlete who achieves the best walks performance relative to the age group record.

The Reading Family is synonymous with Ginninderra with Brendon's parents Phil and Jenny both Life Members. For many athletes vying for this Trophy they will be competing against the Club Records held by Brendon and his brother Michael, our current Walks Coach. Even older brother Jeremy once held a Walks Record at the club in the U17s. Brendon's sister Katrina was also a well regarded athlete at the Tigers.

We are sure that Brendon's continued support of the Tigers will see more athletes follow in his footsteps to bigger and better things in the years to come.

High Jump mats need a new home

With the decision by Little Athletics Australia that Under 9 and Under 10 athletes this season will now no longer be allowed to do the Fosbury Flop, but instead the Scissors Kick jump instead, the Tigers no longer have the need for two fully sized High Jumps.

These mats are in a good and used condition. They are old and first used after the 1982 Commonwealth Games in Brisbane.

Ginninderra is hoping they can be found a good home soon and available to anyone who wishes to collect them for no cost.
