Details for the The Sussex Challenge Cup Tournament on the Saturday, 14th of October 2017.
Please to say we got our full entry of 32 players as listed below so a huge thank you to the players who played and hope you will come again next year details about which I will publish here as and when I can arrange something.
My thanks to local Brewer Hepworth’s for agreeing to sponsor our event to the tune of a couple of cases of their fine Sussex ales and there will be some spot prizes for various achievements such as the player traveling the furthest to the venue, which was Edinburgh, and second furthest was Newcastle while the nearest was 7.8 miles so shame we didn’t get a Bognor player attending.
Other prizes included not winning a match, losing to zero and sporting gesture to Bill Pope nominated by first time tournament attending local Dan Sutton.

Many thanks to you all and the very generous whip round and donations for the tea and coffee which came to nearly £100, most unexpected but very welcome and made all the work of putting on the event very worth while and keen to repeat this.
Cheers and happy rolling to you all. Peter
