The Blue Stars held their final Indoor Sprint meeting at Broadbridge Heath. Having held these meetings for 30 years the closing of the current Leisure Centre, due in October, and its demolition, including the majority of the Indoor Athletics facility means that these popular sprint evenings will no longer be able to be held. Keith May, Chairman of the Club, and the meeting organiser for all of the thirty years, said that it was a sad evening to see the end of an era. Since their inception when the ‘Tube’ was built over 5000 athletes have benefitted from being able to have local indoor competition during the winter months, including many internationals as well as many youngsters who have gone on to develop into top class athletes. The final race over the 50m was won by a Blue Star athlete, Alex Wadley.
