Senior Club Championships
All players are asked to arrange matches with opponents as soon as possible. Only three weeks available this year so we need to start promptly. Matches can be arranged straight away. Club nights on Monday and Tuesday coming should result in most early rounds completed. It is up to the members to ensure that the competition runs smoothly. Thank you for your co-operation and Good Luck!
