FINALS day for our Club Championship, sponsored by Drive Vauxhall Leicester, on Sunday, September 11, 2016, included some entertaining matches as well being a fun social day for members, family and friends.
The decision to postpone the event for a day proved to be a masterstroke as Saturday’s drab and dreary rain was replaced with glorious sunshine.
Many thanks go to all the volunteers on the day who made it possible.

So, without further ado a drum roll please for the roll of honour for the 2016 club champions…
