Teams Events

After the success of the monthly Thursday teams evening it has been decided that this will now become a permanent fixture on the calendar. The evening has proved to be a great success.  You don’t need a partner or even to have a regular team as it is all determined on the night.  The most popular comment to come from the night is how much fun it is. So do come along and find out for yourself.  Please keep an eye out for forthcoming dates to put them in your diary. We look forward to seeing you there!
