Well we come to the end of another season, and the end od summer means Pro Night, which you will be aware is Tony O’shea this year, on the 26th October at the Dover Working Mens Club. Over the next few weeks we have knockouts for you to enter to win the chance to play Tony. Each event is £5 entry, and this will also get you in to the pro night. Please come and support your league, pro nights are always great fun but also need support. I am delighted to confirm that not only do we have the continued support of the DWMC this year, both Leighton Carpets and Channel Engineering have agreed to extend sponsorship of the league.

Another important date fr your diary is the 2nd November, this is the start date of the Winter campaign. As you know we changed the format of the league a few seasons back so that we could have less byes reducing the league to three divisions. This I think has worked. However, with that meaning we have 22 weeks in each season, and 5 weeks of other events, the team knockout in its existing format will not be played. I am looking at potential different types of events where it can be all played on one night, like a triples event. This would be in the Winter. The team knockout has always been an events which has had very little support, so maybe the time is right for it to be refreshed.
And as we are starting the league on the second of November, the registration for the Winter is now open. These forms and payment can be handed in at the Pairs and Singles events over the next few weeks, but also a registration period of one hour between 8 and 9pm on the 17th October at the Diamond.
