The knockout competition was held to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the club's junior section.

The event also included Nerf battles and a silent disco and more than 160 people turned up to enjoy the activities.

A group from the club's legends team won the knockout event at the weekend, but donated their medals to the under-10s team who were just behind them in the contest.

Helen Broaders, from the club, said: "The crowds were there in their numbers to support and join in the club celebrations.

The club thanked event sponsors, Pure Comms and Arthur E Davey and Sons funeral directors, and everyone who supported the festival.
