Inter-Club Event
7th May 2016


Following the success of last year's tournament we kept the same format for this season. It was great that we had 12 teams – the best fit for the venue,
Ursuline College, Westgate, and time.

Run in two groups of 6 teams the final order of the teams was derived from the ratio of points for and points against.
Congratulations go to Invicta/Pilgrims club who came out on top. They entered 3 teams – clearly a club with plenty of keen players.
It was a long day – from 10.00am to 6.00pm – a good work-out for the players and quite busy for those on the desk. It was great to see a hall full of people really enjoying playing.
