Letter: Viewpoints - All deserve a sporting chance.Byline: Dot Pearce
In response to Simon O'Hare's reply (Viewpoints, May 21) to my letter of May 19, it's great that the football barriers are to come down at Poplar park, even though it's three weeks into a very short baseball season.
I have never been given any notice of a meeting between the managers of the football team and the Welsh Ladies Baseball Union.
I had no idea who was responsible for the football team, and I thought the council would sort the matter out and let me know when the park was available. However, I was informed by our match secretary last week that the barriers would not be taken down for at least another week but that you may be laying foundations for a stand in the near future. This is what prompted my letter.
I have already investigated other sites. Any other suggestions would be appreciated.
I have organised baseball and badminton badminton (băd`mĭntən), game played by volleying a shuttlecock (called a "bird")—a small, cork hemisphere to which feathers are attached—over a net. Light, gut-strung rackets are used. teams for the past 30 years and would not stand in the way of any sport for the youth of today, but I feel we should be able to enjoy both summer and winter sports winter sports: see bobsledding; curling; hockey, ice; ice dancing; ice skating; skiing; snowshoes; tobogganing. , with just a little bit of give and take.
