Karen Byford, club secretary, said: "A grant from Sport England in 2017 for £9,600, has allowed the club to purchase new equipment, subsidise the costs of two new practice venues, train coaches and offer more younger players the opportunity to play the sport locally.

"We are now rated as a premier club, with a membership of nearly 80 members of all ages and abilities.

"The club is keen to reach more local people to come along for a free taster session and try out the sport for themselves."
