Event Calendar 2017-18



Another busy season saw us clinch the Ward-Higgs (Division 1 of the Inter counties) [click here for details] with something to spare last season. We are likely to finish just outside top place this year in a closely contested event. Our second team is able to hold its own in the Ward Higgs and likely to finish mid table. Third and fourth teams hold their own in their respective divisions.


We enter a wide range of other events having three teams competing in the Scottish league, three teams in the British webserver event, four teams in the BCCL league one team in the British Team event in addition we are playing matches against SchemingMind and New South Wales.


There have been a total of over 50 players representing Yorkshire in a variety of events.


The internal team event (Avison Shield) was won again by Yorkshire Puddings; this event features teams from Worksop, Stannington, Woodseats, Harrogate and a guest team from SchemingMind.  [Click here for details]


The individual championship (Kitchin Memorial), an all-play-all for seven players, has four players still in contention for the title. Such was the popularity of the event that we had to hold a 13-player qualifying event for the next event (won this time by Peter Ackley).  [Click here for details]


We continue to offer competitions for all levels of ability and commitment.
