Winter Woolies Triples Tournament

Winter Woolies Open Triples
Sunday 21st January 2024
Flint Hall, Creeting St Peter, near Needham Market

At our new venue of Flint Hall, near Needham Market, we are proposing an Open Triples event this coming January.
It will be a Triples Event, with your entry fee being inclusive of freshly baked pizza, teas and coffees. If you have any special dietary requirements, you need to let us know BEFORE the event.

There are on-site toilets and kitchen facility. A 100-person covered seating area, patio heaters, pizza oven and “bar area” available. Bring your own alcohol if you want to.

This event will be limited to a maximum of 12 triples teams (this is NOT a melee event, so it’s up to you to make your own triples teams). Each triples will get to play 4 games over a 5-round format. The games will be 45 minutes long plus one extra end. Final positions will be determined by wins.

The majority of your entry fee will then be paid to Flint Hall for the cost of food and drinks, with whatever we have left to be used towards prizes. Spot prizes will be awarded on the day for achieving certain mystery achievements.

To register your interest in receiving an official invite to this event, please either respond to this post or email me directly at imogenlewiskira@sky.com.

First come, first served based upon the date and time of your registering of interest.

To avoid any confusion, if you are registering your interest, please let me know who your other two players are, so that I don’t double-count.

NOTE…this is an absolutely new piste and is only a few months old, there are some hard areas and some soft areas as would be expected from a piste this young. So you know what to expect……

Winter Plate Draw

Following the completion of the first round of Cup games, the draw for the 2023 Winter Plate is now ready.

Round 1 of the Plate is to be played anytime between the 19th November and 13th January to allow for flexibility to play this over the Christmas period.

Round 2 of the Plate must be played before 21st January, so please be aware that if you arrange your Round 1 game towards the end of the permitted time, you could potentially leave only 8 days to arrange and play the next round. In this case you may want to speak to your potential opponent(s) and have a plan in place in advance.

Where a team is marked as Team Name or BYE (e.g. Huntingfield Arms or BYE), that team has yet to play their first round Cup match, and if they win that game then they will continue in the Cup and team drawn against them in the Plate will get a BYE through to Round 2 of the Plate. We hope that these teams are able to arrange their first cup match as soon as possible to allow time to play the plate first round if required.

License Survey Update

Thank you to all those who have taken time to complete the license survey for Suffolk Coastal Region.

So far we have 38 people who are considering taking a SCR license should we proceed with forming the region, and 37 of those would be interested in playing in the Inter Regional competition.

This is an excellent start, and if you have not yet completed the survey, you can do so by clicking here.
