Fitness - Circuit Training

 

 

 

 

Garrett Parker, personal trainer and PE coach at CISP, has done a wonderful job equipping the gym with the latest gear to get us in shape. He will be in the gym and available to advise and train people on Monday and Thursday mornings from 9-10 am. Teachers may use the gym free of charge and others may make a donation (paid to the donation box in the gym). The gym is available at other times as well. For more information, contact Garrett Parker.

 

 

CISP Pickleball Club

With about  million players worldwide, Pickleball is the fastest growing paddle sport in North America. It is quickly spreading to Europe with clubs in Belgium, England, Finland, France, Ireland, the Netherlands, Spain, Ukraine and now the Czech Republic. The CISP Pickleball Club is the first pickleball club that was been started in the Czech Republic. It was started in May, 2014.

 

Pickleball is a mix between tennis, badminton and ping-pong. It is played with wooden or graphite paddles and a modified, plastic wiffle ball. Pickleball is played both indoors or outdoors on a badminton-sized court with a slightly modified tennis net. Games are usually played two against two.

 

Our group has a private CISP Pickleball Facebook group page where we have the latest updates on what is happening with pickleball at CISP. Our club is open to parents, students, staff and friends of CISP in the Prague community. Anyone in our school community is welcome to join and may invite others that are not connected with the school that live in and around Prague. Visitors or turists in Prague are welcome to play with the group if it is arranged ahead of time.

Players in our group have helped introduce the sport in other local schools and churches. The group also sent equipment to a group Hungary and a school in Kosovo to assist with introducing the sport in these areas.
