Tight at the top!
The first tournament of the season saw seven teams turn up to Westonbirt for a sunny day of lax, including newcomers Hawks, who had a fantastic day finishing mid table just above Birmingham, Oxford and Bath City.
Continuing the battle for top spot from last season, Bristol Bombers, Southampton Ladies and Cheltenham Cougars came out fighting. With Southampton drawing with both Bombers and Cheltenham, and Cheltenham just losing out to Bombers, the Bristolian ladies took first position, followed by Southampton in second place and Cheltenham in third.
Umpires on the day benefitted greatly from the mentoring provided by Paul Jenkins, including an umpire clinic over the lunch break – thanks Paul!
A great first tournament and we look forward to welcoming even more teams for round two!
