The weekend of the 9th & 10th of April we honoured our Founder, Coach and Friend Vince Marriott. We had Bath Panthers attend on Saturday to provide our Juniors their first games since our new programme launch in July 2021. Sunday was memorial day! Both past and present Senior Club Men and Women’s Players showcased the day with two memorial games.
