Following a five year gap, the local Tenderfoot Team (formed in conjunction with the Rotary Clubs of Saundersfoot and Tenby) were again crowned Champions at the Welsh Disabled Sports Team Championship for the eighth time in the last thirteen years.

The Tenderfoot Team was formed in conjunction with the Rotary Clubs of Saundersfoot and Tenby who undertook the training for this years competition, ably assisted in the transport arrangements by the Rotary Club of Narberth and Whitland, with a strong contingent from the Saundersfoot Club travelling to Cardiff to support the teams together with members of the Wisemans Bridge Rowing Club who ran the Static Rowing Competition.

The Rotary Clubs can be justifiably proud of the fact that they are the only Rotary Clubs in South Wales to undertake such training for the disabled.

Team managers - Rotarians Charles Hopkinson and John Walker-Smith of the Rotary Club of Saundersfoot stated that it had been an outstanding achievement to win the competition and also the third place awarded to their other team, proving that the practice undertaken throughout the year has paid off.
