On Mondays (as opposed to our Thursday competition sessions) the accent is very much on welcoming new and developing players.
First of all, from 7pm to 7.30pm, we assess new players' needs on the evening.
Then, at around 7.30pm, we decide who does what.
If you wish, you will get individual attention from an experienced player.
Otherwise there will be some low key competitive action.
This will form a part of the Monday Club Winter Grand Prix competition, and entry will be FREE, but there will be an optional £10 side pool available.
This evening's featured format is 3 Point Round Robins of 4, 5 or 6 players, where you play a first to 3 points match (with the doubling cube in action, and the Crawford Rule) against each other member of the group.
Finishing order in each group will be determined by most matches won, and that order will determine Winter Grand Prix points awarded. Players finishing equal on wins will share the points.
Those points go towards each player's Monday Club Winter Grand Prix totals.
The side pool winner in each group will be the side pool entrant finishing highest, but the pool will be shared by players who finish equal.
Should there be time afterwards, other impromptu flights will be arranged on demand.
If you have a board, please bring it!
