The first Big Session mini-tournament of the 2015/16 season took place on Saturday to round up the first half-term’s coaching. Winners of the first session were William Allen, Sam Yates, Jack Allen, Sam Burnham, Hope Sommers and Vicky Mendez.
Winners of the second session were Michael Penn, Behram Khan, Izzy Mullen and Sofia Aujla-Jones. Looks like we have a new and unusual trophy – presumably because the previous winners have forgotten to return their prize!!
