The Great Yarmouth Blue Pointed Event And No Fear Event

Saturday 13th June 2020 - 11am

This year's event is being held at the Grosvenor Casino on the Great Yarmouth Seafront opposite the Wellington Pier with Free Parking for the day.

Starts at 11am finishes about 5pm. 

The Blue Pointed session is a great event as players that do well, play against others who are also performing well, whilst those not doing quite so well play against comparable competitors. This means everybody will have a very enjoyable day competing against their own standard. Prizes will be awarded for each round's best scorer, therefore everyone has a chance of winning.

The No Fear Event is open to all players who have less than 500 Masterpoints. This provides a chance for those with slightly less experience to compete against players at a similar level. It is an opportunity to play in an event against new players and meet new friends.

Free tea & coffee will be available during the together with a buffet lunch.

Please come and join us at the Seaside for a Fun Day.

Further details regarding entry & entrance fees will be provided in due course. Please refer to this part of our website for updates.
