The Sylvia Rose is our highly successful and enjoyable team league, played over 11 Wednesdays from late September to end March. Last year, we had 14 teams, one extra team has already expressed interest in joining, and we would really like to get to 16 teams. We would particularly like to encourage new members to join in, perhaps even forming a "new members" team.
The competition starts on Wednesday 26th September and entries are now open. Click here for Sylvia Rose 2018/2019 ENTRY FORM and Dates.doc

Well done and thank you to Graham Davison, Gabriel Hearst, Jane and Tim Green , for representing our club with credit in the Surrey Affiliated Clubs teams of four Wanborough cup. Our team finished in the top half. The event was won by a Wimbledon team that included top internationals Frances Hinden and Geoffrey Allerton.
The EBU National Garden Cities Cup also took place this week-end. This competition is for affiliated clubs teams of 8 winners from across England counties. It is quite an achievement for any club team to simply make this national final. Tunbridge Wells won the overall event. The Reading team which included Tim Rees finished 3rd, and the Petersfield team which included Gabriel Hearst , Mike Kinsey and Mike Fithyan finished creditably too.
It is great to see so many of our members competing in top Surrey and EBU national competitions.
