PaFF 11 - Stop Press - Change of venue, Change of finish time

The 11th PaFF funLeague competition day is on Saturday, 8th February,

Due to circumstances out of our hands, we're having to move venue.

The new venue is still in Sighthill, still very close to the end of the M8 motorway.

Engage Centre for Sport and Fitness, Edinburgh Napier University, Sighthill Court, Edinburgh
EH11 4BN

This is the same venue we held the 9th PaFF, last May.

Due to the change in venue, fencing will now finish at 5pm, and not the usual 4pm.

Other changes: the swimming pool is now 5 minutes away by car.
