Men, women and juniors joined together in two inter-club tournaments - one for juniors and one for adults - during the day, followed by a presentation evening, with trophies sponsored by Mundesley Spar.
This year was extra special, as the club was also celebrating one of their young players being cleared of psoriatic arthritis.
The player is only 11 years old and has had the condition for seven years.
