National Youth Championships 2006 - 1st July

National Youth Championships 2006

The Championship took place on 1 July 2006 at the Queens Park Sports Centre in Chesterfield, Once again, there were a record number of competitors, with a considerable increase on the 2005 entries. This has been the trend for the past couple of years and is evidence of the strength and enthusiasm of our membership.
