Many of us hadn't played since school when we first came along. We happily go over rules etc. We do a warm up together, then grab bibs and play, swap around positions, play some more, then cool down so we don't hurt too much the next day! It's on the outdoor courts at North Leamington School. Wear layers in the winter. Join our facebook group for more info.
