Welcome to the 2016/17 season. Last season was very successful and we hope to at least match that success again this season.
The season starts on Saturday 26h November 2016 starting at 1.30pm prompt. As usual our venue will be the King Edward VI School, Lower Hall in Bury St. Edmunds. There will be three rounds of matches – 26th November 2016, 7th January 2017 and 4th February 2017. A tournament will be held on Saturday 11th March and details of this will be published in the New Year.
Each round will consist of matches scheduled to start at 1.30pm, 3.00pm and 4.30pm. Teams will play either two, three or four matches in each round. Please see the Fixtures tab for details.
The number of teams entering this season is , as last season, five in each of the two Divisions. Again, this has made fixture scheduling a bit tricky so please bear with the organisers as we had to maintain a balance of ensuring the afternoon didn’t go on too long into the evening, the cost of the hall and the entry charge for each team. The school have kindly kept the charge for the Hall the same as last season which has enabled us to reduce the Team Entry fee provided we work to the same games schedule.
Whilst there is no League requirement to provide match reports, if some of those supporting their teams would care to pen (or keyboard) a few words about some of the matches and let me have them, I will get them on the website. I’m sure some of you are experienced in providing match reports for the Bury St. Edmunds League!
We hope everyone who plays and supports the teams will enjoy these Saturday afternoons and that all matches are played in a competitive but friendly manner as they have been in previous seasons.
Good luck to all participants.
