This year’s Finals Day was excellent! Encouraged by the fantastic weather, we were really pleased that so many people came along to watch the finals and that they were rewarded with some very entertaining matches!
Many thanks to the Tournament Committee who, yet again, have put in a tremendous amount of work to make sure the competition ran smoothly over the summer & to the Social Committee who produced a fantastic barbecue & some beautiful cakes!
