Season 2020/21

With 8 matches in the season, these matches are held at good venue’s and are very enjoyable.

To book a place at these Matches, details of which are all shown on the 2019/2020 fixture list in your handbook, or for any queries please call Nick Mitchell on 07970 606558

Attendance to these matches would be greatly appreciated and would help save the events from cancellation.

With the last match of the season, having had a delayed start due to Covid 19, this was the perfect venue to finish off, however sadly due to the quarantine restrictions in place and other personal matters, we were reduced to just three Ladies for this match, but we all still had fun in the torrential rain (really we did!) and the results of the day were as follows
