GRANGE OVER SANDS TEAMS OF FOUR EVENTS
It was agreed at the AGM in November 2017 that the club should hold Teams of Four events on certain evenings. We decided to hold these every two months on the third Tuesday of the month and the first of such events was held on 16th January 2018. This was a great success with a total of twelve tables taking part. The second of such events will be held on Tuesday 20th March 2018. The committee will review the success of these events and if regarded as successful the frequency of future events will be decided. Visitors will be very welcome and on these evenings there will be no additional vistor's fee. If you would like to play but are having difficulty finding another pair or partner will you please let John MacLachlan know and he will do his best to find players for your team.
