HOST SYSTEM on WEDNESDAYS

Would members please be aware that the Host system on Wednesdays is there to provide a partner in the event that your regular "partner" is not available to play or to ensure a newcomer will get a game.  It is NOT there so that you can turn up every week without a partner and expect to "get a game".

Our Club rules work on the assumption that after three weeks you should have managed to find someone to play with on a regular basis, as a regular partnership brings long term benefits and particularly a greater understanding of the game.

Whilst we have not yet turned people away for "abusing" the Host system we will enforce the practise if necessary.  If players turn up regularly without a partner our host will not be available to you and you will need to find another player that night who is also "without".
