This past weekend the annual Barry Bauder and Spring Fling Tournament brought 29 senior – some very senior — men's and women's soccer teams to Aldergrove sports fields.

Running March 28-30 at the Aldergrove Athletic Park, Kinsmen and Parkside soccer fields, there were 15 registered men's teams in the Over 60s, Over 50s, Over 40s and Open divisions, as well as 14 women's teams in the Classics Competite, Classics Recreation and Open divisions.

Participating Aldergrove men's teams included Aldergrove Masters, Aldergrove over 40s, Aldergrove over 60s, Aldergrove over 50s and Aldergrove Allegiance, and Aldergrove women's teams included the Aldergrove Battle Axes and Aldergrove Ascent.

Visiting teams included Langley, Abbotsford, Chilliwack, Surrey, Peace Arch, Fort Langley, Mission, Haney, Vancouver, Coquitlam, North Shore, Poco, and elsewhere.

The tournament delivered good competition in a friendly environment. All FIFA rules applied and tournament games were played with 35-minute halves. A concession and beer garden was also open.

Aldergrove United Soccer Club says, "Thank you to all teams and volunteers who participated in the Barry Bauder Memorial and Spring Fling (men's and women's) tournament this weekend (March 29-30). It was another successful tournament and even the weather cooperated for the finals on Sunday afternoon."
