The competition draws have now taken place - please go to the in-house competitions page to see who you're playing against!
Big thank you to everyone who helped with our open day on 27th April - there was a good turnout despite the weather being cold and windy.
Every Sunday during the season, Les will be doing a coaching session from 10.30 till 11.30 am. Juniors from seven years and up are also welcome, provided they're accompanied by an adult guardian.
The bar will be open from 11 am on the Sundays when we're not playing a friendly, with bingo from 11.30 onwards. The first bar opening will therefore be Sunday 12th May.
Our next quiz is on Friday 24th May - see poster below for more details.
We will be having five in-house competitions this year, with a £1 entry fee for each. To download an entry form, visit our "Info for Members" page. The draw for the competitions will take place in the clubhouse on Friday 10th May - 7.30 pm start.
Our 2019 fixture list is now available to download - click on the "Info for Members" tab. Please note that as the season progresses, there may be changes to the fixture list. So if you end up with two different versions in your files and you're not sure which is the most up-to-date one, look at the "Last updated:" footer on the bottom left of the page.
