Championship Final and Club Dinner

The final of the club championship is to be played on Sunday 3rd December at 5pm. The match is to be played between Guy Barker and either Paul Knox or David Main.

Please come along and support the final on Sunday as I’m sure it will be a ‘thriller’ of a match. Following the match is the Annual Club Dinner where there will be the presentation of the club awards.

Both Mark and Bryn will be playing in a National League v Hampton Court on Thursday 7th December starting at 6pm.
