For the very organised among you and, more particularly, for those who aren't, below are the dates for the final stages of next year's club tournaments. I would ask that for both intending players and members who may wish to attend as spectators, you mark these dates in your 2017 diaries in order to avoid later disappointment. Full details, including deadlines for each round of competitions can be found on the club website. As always the play-by dates will be strictly enforced to avoid any difficulties or misunderstandings and, should it be necessary, the coin-toss may decide any unplayed matches. Mens, Ladies and Plate - Finals on 28/04, semis on 26/04. Handicap and Vintage - Finals on 19/05, semis on 17/05. Doubles week - Sunday 24/09 to Friday 29/09. Super-Vintage and Veterans - Finals 13/10, semis 11/10. Brian Hunt - Tournament Organiser.
