The George Durno Doubles will be played at Hanbury on Monday 23rd May.

We will stick to our usual timing, so you have to register with Peter by 10am with 1 entry fee (the 2 donation will come later in the month).

This is a fun doubles competition, with partners being drawn at random. To ensure all teams stand a fair chance of doing well, there is a rolling handicap. The team in the lead is limited to scoring 1 point only, whereas the losing team can keep all their points scored. This effectively reins in the winning team, giving the other side a chance to catch up (or perhaps overtake when they would then be restricted to 1 point).

All teams will play in one league, the league positions determining the final positions. To contain the timing, games will be to a set number of ends, to finish around 12.15/12.30 with the presentation of the trophy and prizes followed by lunch with complimentary teas/coffees/biscuits.

Afternoon play will be available for those wanting to stay on.

Good luck to all the teams.


Membership from January 1st to December 31st, is only 12.00, whether you play 3 times a week or once a year the cost is the same.
