An eventful League trip to Belgium and Holland over the weekend, saw our League up against strong opposition every day versus our respective hosts.
A mixture of matches outdoors and indoors on a variety of surfaces tested the abilities of our group and highlighted where areas of continual improvement is required.
Formal invitations were given to each host club for them to hopefully visit us in the 2016 season and indications are very good that one, if not two teams will actually be in our area next year. Equally we were invited back to play our Belgian and Dutch friends on our own 2016 trip.
