News from the Island Games so far is good for our women's team with Gold in the Team event - (Karen Faragher, Laura Feely, Katie Harris) with Karen also picking up a bronze with Sean Drewry in the mixed doubles. Karen and Laura have also reached the final of the women's individual doubles and Laura is in the Semi Final of the women's individual singles. Sadly the men's team are finding the competition tough.
