Pennant.    Wodonga’s Division 4 mid-week pennant team rounded off a good week for the club by convincingly winning the final against Beechworth, played at Chiltern on 28/3/17. This means that three of the four teams,which contested grand-finals, were successful – a good result indeed.

Ladies Triples Championship.   Contrary to the report in the Border Mail earlier, the final of the Ladies Triples Championship will be played on 4/4/17. The result in the BM should have indicated that it was a semi-final (one of my rare mistakes!!)
