It certainly wasn’t Summer weather for our Bancroft Mixed Fours tournament on the last day of January, with a cloudy day and strong, chilly wind, but that didn’t dampen anyone’s spirits.
We had a good turnout on the day and everyone enjoyed some good play.
A delicious light lunch and yummy, home made sponges to accompany their afternoon tea.
