Our social group holds the club together. The over 35s consist of previous players, coaches, and dads a bunch of light-hearted blocks just wanting a non-serious run and some bloke time. Each Thursday they meet on the grounds at 6:30pm with a handful of games organised during the season. In the off-season, golf days or other activities are often organised.
