    2013 Season

    Thanks to all the support we received our the season. The ladies team lost a close semi final to Sunnyhills and the Mens team was just outside the top 4. We had a great double header at the Club to finish up with and over 300 people turned out to see NZ's number 1 player Rubin Statham in action.

    We are looking forward to the 2014 competition.
