New Website
We are in the process of moving to a new website.
Our new website is not fully ready yet but we will be steadily moving over in the coming weeks.

Starting with the August Bank Holiday Blue Pointed Swiss Pairs all results for our one day events will be reported on our new site only.
Results for the Leagues and Lady Rose will remain on this website for the time being, but they will also be accessible from the new site as well.

Competition entry:
Online entries for the the August Bank Holiday Blue Point event, the Green Point Weekend, the Leagues and the Lady Rose will continue to be taken on this website, entries for all other competitions are now being taken on the new site. Do not worry if you manage to enter on the wrong site, we will pick it up and correct it.

Members Survey
We have a desire to improve our events, and wish to understand what our members want, and we are especially interested in the views of people who do not, or do not regularly, play in our events to see what we can do to attract them. We are definitely interested in the views from those that attend our events regularly, to see what we can do to improve them. We have created a survey to try to find out our members' views on the competitions that we run. It is a short survey, and should not take you more than a couple of minutes to complete. The more people that complete the survey the better the information will be.

Please complete the survey by clicking here: Complete Members Survey

We do ask that you only complete it once!
