Congratulations to Bill and Liz Wattleworth on winning the Waterworth Cup. Second were Paul Roberts and Julian Merrill.


Lady Connell Update

Ten teams have entered the Lady Connell, the County Knock-out teams of four championship. We have initiated some changes for the current season, using the EBU Knockout tool, which can be accessed through the members area of the EBU website. The EBU Knockout tool has made the draw for the first two rounds of the event, with 6 byes in the first round, reducing the field to 8 teams for the second round, also the quarter final. Eventually EBU Knockout will provide a complete record for the event, and also process master point awards.
