The GP committee has agreed a format for the Championship fixtures after consulting members and from the feedback given at the the previous Management Meeting and AGM. The simple aim is to start each discipline and run it on the same night in consecutive weeks (with the exception of Inter-association and International fixtures) to the quarter final stage before we start the next discipline so as you will see from the draft calendar we will start with singles and pairs and run these from the end of April through to completion around the end of May and then start the triples and fours and run these through June. Obviously the Under 18 and Under 25 singles along with the Senior fours have been accommodated on the available Tuesday and Friday nights as per previous seasons. The aim is to avoid the scenario where players enter all disciplines and could potentially be knocked out within the first two weeks of the season. The GP committee may consider future changes to this format in subsequent seasons again after consulting with members.
PLEASE NOTE THAT AS THIS IS A DRAFT CALENDAR DATES AND FIXTURES ARE STILL SUBJECT TO CHANGE ONCE THE ENTRIES HAVE BEEN RECEIVED AND THE DRAWS MADE
