Great to see the females pull a remarkable result out of the bag and win against the select UKC squad in the electrifying final of the female team event. WELL DONE LADIES !

Our males did well to win against British Student Team Champions Kent, but were unlucky in the finals to a select UKC squad made up of former and current national and international champions.

Remember, the Club does not close up for the summer. So if you’re still in Belfast, see you at training, if not, have an enjoyable summer.
