The club has gone from strength to strength and regularly competes in different leagues situated in and around North London. The club has a number of senior teams representing varying skills and ability. Training takes place every week and all members are encouraged to attend.

The Junior Section of the club was formed in 1996 with the idea of girls having fun, learning the game and maybe one day becoming good enough to play with senior members. We now run squads for girls aged under 14, who also train on a weekly basis.

Team selection is conducted through club trials and selection is made, using skills sheets, as well as playing ability over the last season and attendance at training.
