The Semi-Finals of the junior and senior competitions were played last weekend with all the teams playing in the most difficult conditions seen for quite a while. Extreme winds and sideways rain didn’t seem to phase the majority of our teams, with 10 of our teams booking a spot in the Grand Final. One match didn’t finish due to the conditions and we will be played again this Sunday.
Good luck to all players this weekend.
