Members please note that for the 2017-2018 season County events will start at 12.00, in order to allow players time to get home earlier. The County Championships will commence at 11.30 a.m. and the AGM will remain at 1.30 p.m.
Refreshments will be available at County events at reasonable prices.
Entries for the County Swiss Teams must be in at least seven days before the date of the event. This is in order to arrange both the event and the catering. If the event does not attract enough entries to run a Swiss Teams event then a multiple teams competition will be organised.
The cost of entry will be £5 per player for County events, £10 per day for the County Championships and £60 per team for the Swiss Teams. Any members in receipt of full-time education are entitled to zero table fees.
We are still running the Lincoln Gold event which is the County green point event for teams and the County League. We are very keen to have entries for these two events especially from players who are keen to progress through the ranks and play in other events such as the Tollemache Cup. Get your entries in during the next few weeks.
Also note that the rules for the Bainton Trophy have been altered slightly. Any player may try and qualify for the semi-final in as many heats as they wish. If they qualify for the semi-final with two, or more, partners then they must inform the organiser which member they will play in the semi-final with.
Entries to Glynn on 01652654872 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you.
