Events & Diary

We have many club tournaments and events in our region. Details of locally organised tournaments and events can be seen via our Diary page and are usually open to all members of our clubs. We have a very active competitive programme of tournaments which can be seen below, in addition to our own leagues.

Entries to these should be sent to our Secretary on the Registration form at the beginning of the year. Any subsequent changes or additions should be sent directly to the Manager.
