Club Lunch 2019

The Club held its annual Lunch and trophy presentations on Sunday 20th October. The venue was Batch Country House and as always, the staff and organisation were excellent. Members enjoyed a happy and friendly occasion in a glorious setting which added to the occasion. It was pleasing to see so many of our newer members present along with those who have always supported this important club event. Trophies were presented by Club President Dennis Stansfield. Thanks were given to Margaret Davies & Alan Birch for managing the competions through out the season & Dave Nicholls for organising the Lunch. The pictures reflect the event and were taken by club photographer Steve Willkinson.

Good for your health and enjoyed by all ages, men and women.

No appointment is necessary, equipment is provided and no special clothing is needed other than flat shoes which can be borrowed from the club stock. Just turn up and play, friendly coaches on hand.

The club is on the Mark road out of Wedmore, beyond the church and on the right just after the school.
