Sport

Members of NCBC are involved in many sports and keep fit activities, including football, badminton and folk dancing to name a few.

Football

After a successful 2015/16 season where the NCBC men’s team won their fifth Norfolk Christian League title, last season would only eclipse that if a first ever League & Cup double was achieved.  Despite a title race which went down to the final day and goal difference, and a Cup final which took an incredible recovery from an early two-goal deficit, NCBC managed to seal both prizes and secure the league and cup titles in the same season for the first time.  And, as an added bonus, the Christian League Fellowship trophy, awarded to the team who has received the highest overall score based on weekly sporting points given by the opposition, was presented to NCBC after the Cup Final and proudly received, to secure a hat-trick of trophies and cap a memorable year of football for the club.

As the 2017/18 gets underway, NCBC are looking forward to once again competing for silverware.  Early indications after three competitive and close pre-season friendlies and a tough opening league fixture would suggest another tough challenge awaits over the next few months.  Many of the squad have signed up for another year, although player-manager Matthew Seager has decided to hang up his boots and hand the reigns over to Ian Garrod to push the side on. Here’s hoping for another enjoyable campaign, with more success to celebrate in May next year

Where is traning?  At the UEA

Badminton

Badminton is a very popular game for people of all ages.  We meet 2-4pm every Thursday afternoon and enjoy playing three or four games, mainly doubles.  The majority of players are church members although everyone is welcome.  All bring their own rackets and usually change partners and opponents between games.

Folk Dancing

English Folk Dancing is a form of dancing which is recreational and social.  The dancing is mainly in sets rather than as couples and can be quite gentle and graceful, or it can be quite vigorous and is therefore suitable for a wide range of ages and physical abilities.
We meet on the 1st and 3rd Monday of each month at 7.30pm (except August) in the church hall and new members are always welcome.
