Playing Calendar

The Club 2021 Playing Calendar is now available on the website. Let’s hope that all the planned events can take place this year!

Roll Ups Are Back

Subject only to any change in the Welsh Government plans to allow organised sports activities from 26 April 2021, the Monday Roll Up will recommence on Monday 26 April 2021 and the Friday Roll Up will recommence on Friday 29 April 2021.

It’s Competition Time – We Hope!

Subject to the final confirmation of the announcement from the Welsh Government that we will return to Alert Level 3 and 30 people will be allowed at organised outdoor sports from 3 May 2021, the much delayed 2020 Club competitions will take place as follows:

  • 2020 Xmas Melee – Sunday 9 May 2021 @ 11:00am (limited to 30 players)
  • 2020 Club Doubles – Sunday 16 May 2021 @ 11:00am (limited to 24 players)

The entries made for the original competitions have been deleted so, if you want to enter these competitions, you must book again. The booking system is now open.

Both competitions will take place as melees. The Xmas Melee will be a normal melee, whilst the Club Doubles will be a doubles melee where the pairs will be drawn before the competition and stay together for all 3 rounds. Entries for both competitions are, therefore, from  individual players.

Hopefully we will also restart the Monday & Friday roll-ups on Friday 7 May 2021.

All the above is subject to confirmation by Welsh Government.



2020 Club Triples

A bright winter’s day on Sunday greeted the 24 players entered for the 2020 Club Triples competition. The draw had been made the day before, with first division players being seeded to make it a more inclusive event. The teams were:

1 Sean Smith Gill Clark  Linda Halloran
2 Roger Griffin  Mike Wigg Sue Williams
3 Vickie Adshead Phil Roberts  Lynda Hodges
4 Tony Smith  Amanda Jenkins Barbara Kensett
5 Peter Kensett Gill Greenwell Denise Jones
6 Roger Green Judith Smith  Tony Newton
7 Mike Jones Paul Denham Betty Hoyle
8 Bernard Adshead Roger Bennett Melys Phinnemore

Play got under way and after the first round the four teams on one win were Vickie Adshead, Peter Kensett, Roger Green and Bernard Adshead with Peter Kensett leading the way on +6 points. So onto the second round and who could maintain the their winning ways? Peter and Vickie fell by the wayside leaving only Roger (+5) slightly ahead of Bernard (+4) on 2 wins each.

So the nail biting final round. Would one or both of the leaders fall at the last hurdle and perhaps leave the way open to another contender? Could Bernard better Roger’s score and pip him at the post? Would Vickie do Bernard a favour by beating Roger? All these questions and a myriad more in which nobody was really interested would soon be answered.  

The competition was over and El Pres Mike Jones revealed that both teams on 2 wins had won their final games but the team out of the competition and not dancing again next week was (drum role) ………… Bernard, Ben and Melys (+9) meaning that Roger, Judith and Tony (+12) were declared the 2020 Club Triples Champions.

Well done to the Champions, thanks to all who took part and well done to Melys on second place in her first competition.

So, on to next Sunday’s 2020 Club Doubles …………………..


2020 President’s Cup

Last Sunday saw 16 members compete for the President’s Cup on a fine winter’s day. Three rounds in melee format were played and the competition was fierce for the first Club competition of the year. 

After the 3 rounds were complete, only two competitors emerged with 3 wins each. After the results had been scrutinised and El Pres got his abacus out, it was confirmed that Keith Nott had a better points difference than Tony Smith and, to the tumultuous applause of the gathered crowd, Keith was declared the winner.
