Standby volunteers required

The standby system is operated so that when your regular partner is unavailable you can still play with the standby on any particular evening that the system is in operation.  Please consider volunteering for our weekly Wednesday, Friday and Sunday tournaments or our once a month Saturday tournament. It is only by members supporting the standby system that this will continue.  Many thanks to those who have already committed to a date on the rota.

The Sunday afternoon tournament (above) is now well established and operates a standby system.  It is a very friendly and supportive environment so don't be daunted by the thought of "playing in a tournament", just come along and join in.

Please arrive around 15 minutes prior to tournament time of 1pm to register. Once registered, please fill the tables from low numbers upwards and help yourselves to tea or coffee. 

Although we aim to finish at 4.30pm, there are rare occasions beyond our control where it is not possible to finish at that time so please consider this when making any arrangements for after the event and allow a little leeway since if you enter the tournament you are committed to play to the end of the event.  

Remember that individuals can attend as a standby will always be present and a game is therefore guaranteed.
