On Friday, a team of 30 over 55s represented The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Centre at Better’s Annual Club Games. The team travelled down to the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in London to compete across a variety of sports including badminton, bowls, darts, dominoes, and a timed swim. Special guest, javelin thrower Fatima Whitbread opened the ceremony. Rugby competed against other Better centres from across the country and placed 14th out of 22 teams. This is the third year that Rugby has attended the games, which have been running for 13 years, and hope to take an even bigger team in 2018.
