In their final match of this years league they faced tough opposition from the West Hants Club ladies from Bournemouth who have won all their matches and will be crowned winners of Division 1. The home fixture saw Sandie Benham, Lesley Miotto, Elaine Whitham and Sally Clackett in action and even though it was a great match the result went to the Bournemouth ladies 4-0 (49 – 25 games).

Well done ladies on another great season representing Hampshire Court!
