Agility Equipment Set Up

The session times are as follows:

  • 6.40pm – 7.30pm First Session: Class 1 (beginners) and Class 4
  • 7.40pm – 8.30pm Middle Session: Class 2 and Class 5
  • 8.40pm – 9.30pm Last Session: Class 3 and Class 6

We need help setting up the equipment before the start of the First Session and putting it away after the Last Session. 

Due to time constraints of our venue booking, we cannot allow sessions to overrun to compensate for equipment not being set up on time. The first session will end at 7.30pm no matter the start time. This may mean a shorter time available for training. We are asking that members training in the first session arrive at the venue for 6.00pm to set up the equipment. If this is completed before 6.40pm, the session will start early and you will gain extra training time.

For safety reasons please do not bring any dogs into the main or side arena until the equipment set-up has been completed.

About an Agility Match

An Agility Match is a small scale show, where the entry is limited to the members of the participating clubs – in this case Letchworth, BATS, Milton Keynes and Wellingborough.

As with Kennel Club shows, dogs must be registered with the Kennel Club, although we accept pet names on the entry forms. A dog that holds an Agility Certificate is not eligible for a Match.

There will be two rings: Agility and Jumping. Classes are organised by grade, there being several classes for which each dog is eligible.

Dogs are awarded points for each result in their class; the winning club is the one with the highest points tally.

Wellingborough are the current holders of the Inter Club shield.
