About 50 club members compete in a ladder type system. This runs over a period of a couple of months and involves up to six singles matches against similarly skilled opponents. The promotions and relegations at the end of each round ensure that players of the same ability are usually in the same box and this has led to an overall league containing players of all ages and abilities. This means that if you want to join there will be an appropriate box that is right for you! If you want to join, or want more details, please contact the organiser, Jon Monkcom Kingsgate.boxes@gmail.com

Country bumpkin dress was encouraged, but not compulsory! For pictures see the 'Gallery' and for further information contact David Woodford, woodywinch@yahoo.co.uk
