50+ Christmas Party 2019

The 50+ players, who play together every Wednesday morning at the indoor centre, enjoyed their annual Christmas Party after their regular session earlier this week. Lots of fun was had on court followed by festive food and a glass of bubbly or two around the Christmas tree.
