Roy Cotton Memorial Match Saturday 8th Sep 12pm

The annual Roy Cotton Memorial Match will be held this Saturday.  We will be playing against Harrogate PC.  The match will start at 12pm so if everyone can be there for 11:30am we should hopefully get under way on time.  How many rounds we play will be dependent on the weather.

There’s a barbecue following the match, but as in previous years, if everyone could bring a contribution dish that would be great.

Hopefully see you all Saturday!

Date for the diary

This years Roy Cotton memorial match against Harrogate will take place on Saturday 8th September.  Please put that date in your diary!  More details will follow closer to the day.

West Yorkshire Cup Final

After this years West Yorkshire League , won by Heckmondwike, a knock-out cup competition was held. The format was interesting in that teams of six were required with 3 male and 3 female players. The initial game was a triple with the men and women playing as a triple and the second games being mixed pairs, making for a different format to the usual league play.

Leeds were drawn against Heckmondwike in the first round, and after some very close games, Leeds won 4-1
Leeds were then against Harrogate in the final, played at Heckmondwike as a neutral venue (big thanks to Clive and his club for thier hospitality).

Leeds won both the triples, after some very competitive play and an interruption for a heavy shower. The doubles were equally challenging and although Harrogate won two out of the three Leeds won the match 3-2!

Paul Simpkins was there to present both the League and Cup trophies after the match.
A big thanks to Paul for organising the league again this year and well done team!

Secretary change-over

newSadly I have to leave you. As intimated at the AGM I can’t carry on as Secretary the main reason being I now live 22 miles away (in Halifax)  and it’s just too far to attend regularly. I will remain a member and hope to call in now and again but from now on your new Secretary is James who will no doubt introduce himself to you in his own time. Thanks for all the support and encouraging words.  Remember if in doubt shoot first and ask questions afterwards.

Paul (and occasionally Lorna)
