N.B. The basis for each of our Team competitions above are currently - enter as a pair and then a 'random' draw for team mates; with The Wigan & District being a complete random draw and The Wild Trophy being the top pairs seeded and a randon draw for their team mates, this is to encourage our inexperienced and novice players to participate.
