Latest Trophy Winners

The 2016-17 Victor Ludorum (most Master Points on Mondays excluding 1st-team players) was won by Ashok Kwatra (more detail, past winners - click here)

Summer Pairs : this was a far-out win for Joe & Wendy Angseesing who will share the trophy, followed by Ian Constable and then Ashok Kwatra.

Summer Teams: The competitions TAB shows a 7-way tie for 1st place: Garry Watson, Diana Nettleton & Keith Stanley; Pam Pearce; Mark Rogers, Trisha Gilham & Richard Harris  BUT  we believe the last three of these deserve an extra point for coming 4th equal on Session 5, which the software refuses to give them.  So those three are joint winners.
