Matches This Weekend

After a tough match last Saturday, the Men's 1s are back at home again this Saturday. Come and support: M1s v Trojans 1:30pm pushback at GHC

The Ladies 1s are away to Fareham. Both Men and Ladies have a full all but one team out after a quiet half-term.

We hope the frost stays away on Sunday so that the Under 12 Boys and Under 12 Girls can compete in their Surrey County competitions - the Boys are hosting 30+ teams at Broadwater for both Cup and Plate competitions.

Two Under 12 Girls teams are away in their Surrey Cup in this competition of 15 teams from across the county.

And there are also plenty of junior league matches on Sunday.

Hoping the pitches are playable and to bring back the points!

See What's On on the GHC Website for all match details
