Funding boost for skydiving team
A SKYDIVING team from Netheravon is celebrating after moving up a category in the extreme sport and gaining an award that will help them further polish their technique.
Entropy, a four way formation skydiving team based at Skydive Netheravon, competed in the 2012 British Open Nationals and European Skydiving League Finals, as well as three UK competitions this year. They have just been awarded £300 by the MARS Milk Fund, which was set up to help individuals, clubs and groups to donate more time to their favourite sport or hobby.
Team member Madeleine Leong said: “Formation Skydiving is a discipline where skydivers create shapes in free-fall scoring points. The aim is to get as many points as possible in a set working time when skydiving.
“Until now we have only been able to train in a wind tunnel as jumps are very expensive. But with this £300 award we can now book some real training jumps to improve our technique further.”
