Summer Programme 2022

As in previous years, over the summer we are meeting fortnightly. We’ll be running the Club Championship, with five dates set aside for that, but with scope for other events alongside that for anyone who isn’t involved. Full rules for the Club Championship are available here, though tweaks may be made to facilitate the inclusion of extra players or the avoidance of byes.
