Covid-19 - Coronavirus

Please note that due to restrictions on the use of King Edwards as a result of the Coronavirus outbreak,
we will be unable to use our venue for the foreseeable future. Club nights are suspended until at least
mid-June, and possibly longer. Please do not visit until this news is updated in due course.

Further information about a resumption of activity will follow as soon as we have firm information.
However, due to social distancing, there will be fewer tables in use and restricted time on them, and as a result we will be unable to welcome "occasional" visitors or non-members until further notice. We are updating our information from time to time as the rules and restrictions develop.

Long term club member Dave Russell Snr sadly passed away on November 20th after a long fight with cancer.
Dave was a well liked member who was always jovial and smiling. He will be missed by all who knew him.

Dave leaves a widow (Mary) and many longer term members will also know his son, also Dave.

Kaila Cup 2019

The Kaila Cup has now finished, with the semis and final played on Monday 12th August

The finalists were Jeremy Tan and Angus Rogers

The final was remarkably close, and played to the same rules as the group games, with the overall points score over four games deciding it. With the same handicaps, the game was effectively played off scratch.

Jeremy started strongly, winning the first 11-2, and following up with 11-10 in the second. However, with some great controlled play, Angus came back to win the third and fourth, both by 11-6. As a result, they were equal on points at 34 each after the four games.

So it went to a deciding 5th game, which was all square up to 6-all. But then Jeremy hit a burst of great form, and ran away with the last few points to win it 11-6 and thus take the win and the trophy, presented by Anand's widow Swaran. Congratulations from all club members.
