The Champions .... Kgalagadi Mens :dance: :dance: :dance: :dance: :dance:

Well done to Jannie and the boys :clap: :clap: :clap:

They now have a cricket pitch to play on (thanks SA Cricket Board), tennis players can now have their court back? .....not while cricket practice is on :D

Thanks also to the Griqua Cricket attendance, for umpiring and coaching the children
