Started in 2003 as a social side, the Jades entered into league competition in their very next year of playng. In 2005/6 and 2006/7, the Jades won promotion each year, and by 2007/8 were playing in the National Challenge East 1 division.
These promotions reflected the increasing skill, fitness and committment of the ladies, but also the talented guidance of the team coaches. Jades Chairman Phil Burton, who has been with the team from the start states, “What a group of ladies! Regardless of skill level, the Jades environment brings out the best in the ladies. I’m so proud to have been with the Jades from the start.”
