6 March 2018 - Look out for (AC) Armada & (GC) Solstice entry forms
Entry forms for the above two Doubles tournaments will be sent to member club AC & GC contacts very shortly.
In a change to previous seasons - players can now enter themselves and no longer need to be nominated by their clubs. Multiple entries from players from he same club are now permitted and doubles partners can come from the same or different clubs. Although these are doubles tournaments, players may enter as single players and the managers will seek to pair up singletons.
So please do enter!

Hamptworth pair are SCF handicap 'Champions of Champions'
Hamptworth players Tim O'Donnell (left) and Steve Bennett (right)respectively won the SCF's AC and GC handicap 'Champion of Champions' tournaments this weekend and congratulations to them both.
The tournaments pit the previous season's handicap champions of member clubs against each other, this time hosted by Hamptworth CC.
SCF Tournaments Officer Richard Jenkins reports that there was good support for the GC tournament on Saturday when 12 players locked horns in two blocks of six which each provided a finalist.
The host's Steve Bennett defeated Littleton's Jerry Wilde 7-3 in that final.
On a cold Sunday the SCF's Rep to the CA Frances Colman battled being under the weather to stoically play in and manage the AC tournament which was a straight knock-out between eight players.
Hamptworth's rapid improver Tim O'Donnell made few mistakes, and in the final particularly, where he saw off Noel Harris of Eynsham.
