Bolton v Tyler Hills Teams 25 April 2024 7pm
A Teams match Bolton v Tyler Hills Club (Canterbury) has been arranged for Thursday 25th April 2024 on BBO at 7pm. We will play 16 boards with a switch at half way so both pairs play both pairs in the opponent's team. We convert results to VPs in the normal manner, the club which wins the most VPs takes the glory. You will not be charged for the match on BBO. Could you register below if you and your chosen partner would like to represent Bolton in this match? Or alternatively Email to register your interest. We need to have an even number of pairs so further registrations after the 16 players already enrolled, may not be guaranteed a game.
