Metropolitan Cup

This year’s Metropolitan Cup took place over the weekend, with Middlesex CBA hosting.  The Met Cup is the south-east region’s Teams of Eight championships, with seven counties – Berks&Bucks, Essex, Kent, London, Middlesex, Surrey and Sussex – competing across three divisions.

The Surrey teams were:

A - Arun Suri & David Norman, Charles Chisnall & Bob James, Graham Sadie & Richard Granville, Richard Fedrick & Mike Scoltock

B – Steve Irwin & Tony Cherrett, David Dawson & Christine Dyer, Gerard Thompson & Andrew Mann, Peter Hardyment & Malcolm Bricknell

C – Simon Prager & Henryk Klocek, Brian Adlam & Dave Sellman, Tim Warren & John Manches, Graham E Osborne & Mike Tinsley

In the A Division, we won by a distance, with a remarkable 90VPs/120.  Charles & Bob came top of 28 in the individual pairs’ (cross-IMPs) table, and all four of our pairs were in the top half.  By winning, our A team qualify for the national finals in June 2020.

Surrey B finished 5th, with David and Christine our best-placed pair at 7th/28.

Surrey C finished 3rd – we were leading at half-time, but losing 4-16 to the eventual winners gave us too much ground to recoup.  Brian & Dave came an excellent 2nd/28 in the individual pairs’ table, and again all four pairs were in the top half.

Teacher Training in Surrey / Hampshire / Sussex / Kent

Club Teacher Courses are now Free for members of affiliated Clubs

There are numerous Club Teachers courses which have already been organised in 2019. We are trying to organise some more in Hampshire, Surrey and Sussex.

Free places for affiliated clubs - Some clubs affiliated to the EBU may be able to receive a 'free place' on these courses. They should book on the course as per , and a club official should email the EBU's Club Liaison Officer - - and advise her of the details of the club member who is attending the course, and confirm that the club has approved their attendance on its behalf. Applications for a free place should only be made if it will be used in the spirit for which it is intended – to help a member provide lessons to bring new players in to the club as part of a club-wide effort to grow the membership and help the club thrive. 

Anyone who wishes to discuss becoming a teacher please contact Meena Samani on 07740 053683
