We play 7 matches, roughly once a month from September to April.
We play online on Realbridge on a Saturday from 2pm-5.30pm, playing 24 boards, made up of two stanzas of 12 boards each

We enter 3 teams, an A, B and C team. Each has a criteria for selection, but the C team is the starting point and you and your partner need to be below Premier Regional Master (50 greens).
It is a friendly and enjoyable way of spending a Saturday afternoon and whilst reasonably competitive, offers a good start for regular club players if they haven’t experienced team competition before. You can earn green points or parts of green points for each match you win.
We would welcome new pairs to put themselves forward to join us.
We will try and ensure that each pair plays at least one game in the season, but if we are inundated with new pairs, this may need to be spread over a couple of seasons
If you and your partner would like to put your names forward to play in the C team, please send your details, name, email address, phone number, club and ranking to Richard Welsford, (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Pairs who are interested in playing in the A or B team in the league should contact Mike Best. Both are keen to attract new recruits.
The Western League co-ordinator is Richard Welsford (email@example.com), who also runs the C Team.
The A and B Teams are selected by Mike Best (firstname.lastname@example.org).
