Spare Partners

Please check the Spare Partner list at the club; if you are able to sign up for a vacant slot it will be much appreciated.

The sign-up lists for June, July and August are available and we need spare partners for Monday 26 June and Thursday 29 June.

Many thanks to all who have acted as host on multiple occasions recently. It is worth remembering that if all members signed up we would all only need to do one Spare Partner duty per year.

Looking for a Partner

There is usually a spare partner available on the day (but not always).  If you are looking for a partner for a future session you should check the message board and you can then post your message, or cancel an earlier request.

Bob Mankin is looking for a partner for Monday 12 June.  ► See the Partner Message Board

Village Day / Handicap Challenge
Village Day / Handicap Challenge

Bookham Village Day is on Saturday 17 June. Our annual handicap challenge will be on Monday 19th and Thursday 22nd June. We are asking players to make a donation to the Bookham Community Association at these sessions to show our appreciation for this wonderful venue. You can make your donation with a second play voucher or £3 paid by contactless card.

Scores will be calculated and Master Points will be awarded in the usual way in the two competition sessions. The Chairman's Cup will be awarded to the pair with the highest score after adjustment for their handicap. The handicap assigned to each partnership will be based on players' average scores, giving all players, stronger or weaker, an equal chance in the competition.

Monday Harrison Room Events

On the first Monday in the month the Main Hall is used by another organisation. We therefore have to use the Harrison Room where we are limited to 14 tables and sign-up lists are required.

If you have signed up for a Harrison Room event but are subsequently unable to attend please inform Kate or Neil of your cancellation.

If the first Monday is a Bank Holiday we have to use the Harrison Room on the second Monday with the same conditions. 

There are no Harrison  Room events in August.

At present visitors are welcome but no spare partner will be available. 

Please note that we are not allowed to use the front car park on these occasions.
