Many thanks to everyone for their generosity, with £350 raised for The Chiltern Air Ambulance
 
Our thanks also to those who were involved in making the event a success.
FRIENDLY TEAMS

Whilst most club nights are duplicate pairs  your club has a strong teams component.  A teams event is held monthly on Friday evenings.  We have teams in many competitions including the Wessex and Chiltern leagues and  consistently achieve good to excellent results.

We are keen to encourage more  of the club's players to take part in teams  and to this end  are looking  to start up a friendly teams regular event, both for new teams players and those with a little (or even a lot) of experience who would like  to share that experience with new players.   If you would like to take part please Click here   to email Brenda Edwards
