Hello from Australia

I am sending this email to your organisation to see if you could forward this email to your members to see if anyone is still looking to play in Auckland at the World Masters in April. Our team is from Rockhampton Queensland and will be playing in the 35+ comp (only because we have one youngster at 39)… and we would love to hear from anyone who would like to play and have a great time.
If anyone is interested or would like to know more about our team you can email Selena Knott at - for a few of us this will be out first World Masters tournament and first time to NZ as well and we can’t wait to see some great games and enjoy the islands of NZ.
I thank you for taking the time to read this email and appreciate any help from your clubs.

Kind regards
