Development Officer, Tony Aubrey said, “It is a fun way to keep fit and meet new friends in a great social environment and is open to people from all abilities, genders and ages. We have had some fantastic feedback from players in past years. It was a real privilege to have Paul Broadbent turn up last Tuesday. It gave the players a unique experience to play alongside a former Great Britain International.”
