Trip to Pat Rafter Arena Brisbane

On Sunday 13th November 2016, a bus load of Clifton players attended the Pat Rafter Arena for the hiring of the main Arena.  This prize was won by Billy Mutch at the Farmers Day and Billy kindly invited a group of tennis club members to join him.  Everyone had a chance to have a game on the main arena and feel like superstars for the day – even the ladies had a game.  Thank you to Tennis Qld and Hutchinson Builders for the loan of the bus and to Michael for driving the bus on the day.  What a great, enjoyable day!!!
