However this year we also fielded a second BUCS team for only the second time in our club history. Despite most of the team being brand new to the sport they played excellently and narrowly missed out on a place at BUCS Shield. Furthermore our first team remain unbeaten in the local league and we now look ahead towards the Northern Regional League promotion play offs. This is the first time the University has qualified for these play offs and is a huge step forward for the club. In addition to our on court success we hosted our first tournament in October where we welcomed teams from across North England and Scotland, rebranded as the Newcastle ‘Sharks’ and have boosted our club membership throughout the year!
