Summer Crib League

Following Tonbridge Royal British Legion’s generous hosting of the second half of our winter crib league, we hope to start our summer singles league at the same venue (beginning late April). Anyone wishing to join this friendly annual league or wanting further details please contact Paul Buss or leave your contact details with the office on 01732 771262

Summer Leagues

Having made contact with the captains who ran teams last summer the committee have decided that it will not be possible to run any daytime leagues during this summer due to insufficient support. The Royals offered us rink usage providing we could guarantee sufficient numbers to occupy the rinks each week, which under the circumstances we could not.

However, they run their own mixed triples leagues on Tues, Wed, and Thurs evenings from 6pm to 8.15 pm.

From the feed-back we got, it would appear that we have about 26 members who could be interested.

On this basis we may be able to have, say, three teams of eight, which would be entered into their leagues on any of the evenings. The teams would need a captain to organise each team and complete an entry form and send it to John Prince (at the Royals) a.s.a.p., as the leagues start on the 29th April.

If anyone is interested in running a team, copies of the entry forms are available from the office, and on this website on the Competition Entry Form page.

If anyone requires further information on the evening leagues please contact me, Harry Hart. (contact the office for ‘phone number if you need it).

Don’t forget we have a full summer match programme arranged, so the committee look forward to seeing you all playing in these whenever possible.

Thanks, Regards Harry.
