Website newsletter - 09/01/2014 @ 10:04

The newsletter subscription box has been removed from the website.  It was felt to be no longer useful as club communications have been re-organised and it was unlikely further website-based newsletters would be produced.

Virtually all subscribers have other connections to the club so they can expect to continue to receive communications from us.


8 teams came for a day's play in pleasant if chilly sunshine today.  The event was won by Janet Hoptroff and Robin Wootton.

Solomon Cup  SCCC  Southwick 28th/29th September 2013

John Daniels, having come through his semi-final  +13 against top seed, Mark Ormerod,  won the Solomon Cup  for the second year in succession by beating the Manager  +10 +12  in the  Bo3 Final.  Sadly there was a disappointingly low number of  entries (only 10) but this at least meant  that all players enjoyed games that were single banked  and plenty of space in the Club Hut to eat the excellent lunches provided by the Club!  The Consolation Swiss was won by Mark Ormerod who 26’d David Marsh in their last game of the weekend to finish on 4/5.
