Well Done to our Ladies team who have won promotion to Division 3! The squad includes Fiona MacDonald, Clare Donnelly, Marissa Gordon, Karen Haggarty (capt), Trish Cameron and Anna Currie (all pictured above). Also involved were Celia McKenna, Yvonne Gadsby-Turner and Karen Goodwin.


Back-to-back wins of 8-1 in their final two matches made all the difference and means that the team have stayed only one season in the lower division. A great all-round performance from everyone concerned!



The Gents team have gone from strength to strength with a highest place in the league in recent years. \
