The Results for BBATT 2018...

Congratulations to Aylesbury for winning BBATT 2018!

And Congratulations to Lilia Gilbert for winning Top Girl and to Ben Newell for winning Top Boy!

We actually had the top 3 girls and 4 of the top 8 boys overall - so a high quality performance from the Club, even though our strength in depth wasn't quite enough to retain the trophy. We'll be back stronger next year to give it another go!

Well done again to everyone involved!
