The draw has been made for the third round of the club championships – and while there’s eight byes, we can try arrange some matches for the Wednesday after the main round (i.e. 3rd August) if the people concerned are around/interested.

Two of the matches have been played in previous tournaments – Gerry scored a surprisingly quick win against John in round 3 last year after John hung a piece, while Desmond’s resilient draw against Dave Willow in round 5 of last year’s tournament ultimately decided third place, which Desmond took on second tie-break from Dave.
All matches listed are down for Wednesday 27th July at 7:30. If any of the eight players want to play on 3rd August, we can see what sort of fixtures we can arrange – keeping them roughly within the general scope of a regular draw of course.
