Great Fun At Red Ball Tournament








 32 players of all ages and lots of family and supporters enjoyed the fun and competition on Sunday at the first Red Ball Tournament held at Acle. Ann picked the  8 teams of 4 and we all played each other in true red ball tie break style. It was great fun and more demanding than a few of us oldies cares to admit!
