Knockout Round 2


The next round of the Knockout is on Tuesday 29 October.

This year we have the unusual situation where Horsham 4 have a match on the same night. If you are affected please just arrange to play your game at the earliest opportunity.

First competition winner

Congratulations to Peter Harbott, who won the longplay KO plate last Tuesday by defeating Peter Helliwell in the final. The main KO draw is also nearly sorted with one finalist determined and the other due to be decided soon. There are still plenty of games in the all-play-alls to keep you amused until the summer!
