Ladies Outdoor News - July
June has flown past and we’re now almost half-way through the outdoor season. Time really does fly past when you’re having fun!
Ladies afternoons continue to have good turnouts. All ladies are very welcome; come along around 1.30pm to register, we play from 2pm.
A big thank you to everyone for continuing to put their names forward for the Affinity and 20/20 league games. If you are not selected for a game, please don’t lose heart - your turn will come, you aren’t being overlooked; so far this season we have been able to give 22 ladies a game.
We have 6 games coming up in August and will need as many of you as possible available to play - each date requires 6 players plus reserves - so please put your names down. A reminder too that there are mixed friendlies which you can put your names down for.
