Home friendly against Bishop Monkton

Tuesday 13 July saw us entertain Bishop Monkton at Chester-le-Street in the latest in the series of friendly matches against the Yorkshire club.

In spite of overcast skies, it stayed dry and we all had an enjoyable day, especially the home team who won by 134 to 91 (hoops made).

Many thanks to everyone who took part, especially this contributing cakes and biscuits (seen above being enjoyed after the conclusion of the match).

The team of eight format is designed so that each member plays a 30 minute game partnering each of their teammates and that no-one meets a player from the other side more than twice in the seven-session series.
