2021 Spring Meeting at Rothley Park Cancelled
It is very disappointing but yet again due to the Coronavirus the Spring Meeting at Rothley Park has been cancelled. The three months lockdown and continued restrictions have resulted in this difficult decision being made.
On a more positive note, we are delighted to report that Rothley Park will now be the venue for our Autumn Meeting in 2022.
With restrictions scheduled to be lifted through the coming weeks we are hopeful that our future matches and events will be able to go ahead as planned.
We look forward to seeing many of you playing in our events planned through the remained of the year
