We had a very large group of juniors in our Winter Combined Division, which is both exciting to see new players starting, yet challenging to try and finish in time for senior games to begin at 7pm. The combined format is working well, as it allows evenly matched games to be scheduled weekly, ensuring maximum enjoyment by both players when getting a good competitive match.
In the future we will not let this Division swell to the high numbers of the winter competition, to try and minimise running over time, and having idle players waiting for games or supper.
Well done to all our Combined Junior Players it is great to see to some good points increases this round, and most players returning for the Spring Competition.
