SAC vs Automobile Club de France
On Saturday 30th September, the SAC Snooker Team successfully played their return match against the Automobile Club de France at the Club. Four doubles matches were played in a pleasant and passionate atmosphere. SAC won all four of them for a decisive victory against ACF. The Snooker Section would like to thank Mario, the manager and the staff for organising a delicious lunch to welcome our friends from the ACF opposing team.

End of the season report
The 2017 Junior Cricket season finished on Saturday with the traditional Parents vs Kids and Dads vs Lads matches. In the well-attended Parents vs Kids match, kids played brilliantly. Stung by the result of this match, the Dads came out swinging in the second match. Read the whole match report here.
Many thanks to all the parents who helped out throughout the season, and for the enthusiasm and commitment of your children that make this such an enjoyable activity to run.
The 2018 season will start next May, but before then LFP Morangis have challenged the U16s to an indoor cricket match in the gymnasium they will be training in all winter. SAC cricketers plan to accept their challenge.
