WEDNESDAY AFTERNOONS

As Wednesday afternoons have proved so popular, we are increasing the number of times we will play.  At the moment, we play weekly between 1 October and 31 March and twice a month the rest of the year.  With immediate effect, we will now have Wednesday sessions every week for 9 months of the year, from 1 September to 31 May; we will continue with sessions twice a month in June, July and August.

For this year’s calendar, that means extra sessions on 19th April, 3rd and 17th May, 13th and 27th September.  [No session on 5th April or 31st May, as the room is unavailable].   These new dates will be put on the website and club noticeboard.

My thanks to our panel of Wednesday directors (Gail Tillen, Sue Tyler, Stuart MacDonald and Richard Rees) whose commitment makes these additional sessions possible.

David Twells  -  Chairman   (23 February 2017)

 

LEAGUE UPDATE

Now we are past half-way in the league season, an update on Bradgate's 4 teams in the Leicestershire league is overdue.

The A Team is lying comfortably mid-table in Division 2, where the battle for the second promotion spot is very tight and will go down to the wire.  A visit to Division 1 would be, for Bradgate, the first since Howard Stevens led the team in the 1990's.  It's probably a step too far for us this season, but we'll give it our best shot.

Pauline's B Team is leading Division 4 well, after a win last night away at their main rivals Ashby B.  Behind those two, there is little to separate the next 4 teams in that Division; these include Bradgate C Blue (captained by Andy Satterthwaite with active support from his VC Julie Jones) and Jim Wilkinson's Bradgate C Red team.  Red and Blue are closely matched, evidenced by the results when they have met (both 6-6 draws).  C Blue (the new team) have their noses in front in the league table at the moment, but there are still 3 matches to go.

WEDNESDAY AFTERNOONS

The dates for Wednesday afternoons through the summer are now on the calendar page, together with the directors for those days.  We will be playing twice a month from April till September, resuming weekly sessions in October.  Please arrive by 1.30 so that the movement can be set.
