The Over 60s and Over 65s international teams took part in the European Championships in Spain (finishing in sixth and fourth place respectively) and in the World Championships in Hong Kong (finishing in 5th place in both competitions). A combined team played Wales in a double header in November but found the opposition too quick on the break, losing both games.

Sadly, we lost one of our founder members, Jim White, who passed away just over a week before the European Championships in Spain.
