Lightning Strikes Flyball Club was formed in July 2009. We are based in West London.
We were formed by Darren (team captain) & Janice Dent along with Lesley, Kate and Kim Sermon. We ran at our very first competition as Lightning Strikes at the Chilterns show on the 18th of July 2009.
Some special thanks to :-
* The Dogs Trust for allowing us to use their field to train in.
* Wimbledon Whizzers Flyball Club for lending us our first flyball box.
* Shooting Stars Flyball Club for offering us help and advice during our first months.
* All our members for sticking with us and putting so much of themselves into our new Flyball Club.
Although the club is new we have a number of quite experienced members who are able to help people and dogs starting flyball. We intend to run our teams for dogs of all abilities but always for fun and always for the dogs.
We run a number of Flyball teams including: -
Lightning Strikes, Grease Lightning, Lightning Bolt, Lightning Flash and Lightning Seeds (our Starters team).
We compete mainly in the South of England.
