This Friday 24th May is the last round of the Adult Rapid Play Club Championship with Nick Hope currently looking the favourite to pick up the trophy.

On Friday 31st  May 2019 the end of season Blitz Tournament will be taking place between 8pm and 9:30pm and all are welcome; Adults, Juniors, Parents and Guests.

This will be run by Gary over 5 rounds and the time control will be 5 minutes + 3 Seconds a move. As usual prizes can be expected.

The Junior Spring Tournament will end on the 31stMay but we will then start the special additional Summer Term tournament for the Juniors.

This will run as usual between 6:30pm and 7:30pm though we do have the room booked until 8:30pm so if any juniors wish to stay on and play casual games or need help from the trainers on any particular aspects of the game they are more than welcome to stay on.

We will be meeting in the smaller Room 3 only for the summer term and unfortunately we do need to ask for an additional £15 for one child or £25 for two to pay for the room hire.

Unfortunately our team lost in the final of the Paul Watson Trophy against Bognor by the score of 3-1. Thank you to everyone who played especially Ben Crosby who stepped in for Jonathan Grisenthwaite who was away on business. Also to Jon Lawrance who continued his fine form and picked up another win last night.

Congratulations go to Jon who has won the silver medal in the MSCL 2nd division for individual performances in the league this season with a fine score of 8½/10.
