Deans Marsh Dog Trials

A competition where a dog and their handler move sheep through a set of obstacles within a time limit.  A fantastic display of the natural instinct of working dogs, and the skill of their handlers to hone those instincts to a fine art.

Tai Chi

Yang style Tai Chi, Tai Chi Fan and Qi Kung are being taught at Deans Marsh Community Hall on Saturday mornings at 9.15am by Seona Gunn.

Seona has been studying and practicing Tai Chi and Qi Kung for over 35 years.

Table Tennis

Tuesday Evenings from 7.30pm

Deans Marsh Community Hall

ALL WELCOME  *Gold Coin Donation

“One of the better-kept secrets of Deans Marsh is that every Tuesday night at 7.30pm, a few folk gather at the Community Hall to play table tennis.  Some of those who DO know about it refer to it as The Ping Pong Club.”

Marsh Fit

Monday and Fridays at 9am at the Deans Marsh Recreation Reserve

Marsh Fit is a free community fitness incentive.  It is for all ages and both guys and girls.  A two year old and a sixty two year old regularly come to the group!  Mum’s with kids are welcome but it is not just for Mums.  Research shows that people who regularly exercise in a group are more likely to stick at it.

Library Truck

If you didn’t already know, the library truck visits Deans Marsh on Friday mornings from around 10.30 till 12 just outside the school. They have a great on-board selection of books and DVDs and can order you whatever you like from the Geelong Regional Library Collection.
Why not drop in and say g’day to George.
