Mr Mohindra met the parents and players and handed out medals and trophies to the winners of each age category.

Raiders chairman, Chris Armond, thanked the volunteers.

He said: “Making the tournament a success over the weekend relies on a lot of hard work - from getting everything set up the day before, to the parking marshals, the gate stewards, the scorers in the tent, who have to deal with a lot of inquisitive managers, and finally the take-down crew.”

MP Gagan Mohindra attended the tournament.

Berkhamsted Raiders is running taster sessions and have spaces for girls to join the club.
