Sunday Afternoon Open Pairs

 

The Sunday afternoon tournament (right) 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.

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.  Unfortunately, there are presently no standby volunteers available on Monday evenings, and in order that the standby system can be maintained at all of our tournaments we are asking for people with any availability on Monday evenings to add their name to the standby rota so that anyone without their regular partner can still manage to play.  Even if you are only occasionally available, please give your support by registering for the rota on the dates you are available.

Saturday Evening Tournament - 28th October 2017

Saturday 28th October 2017 is our monthly Saturday tournament night.  Come along around 10 minutes or so before the tournament start time of 7pm to enable a prompt start and an equally prompt finish.  All welcome and a standby will be available in the event that your regular partner is not available.
