The Tamworth Tournament went ahead yesterday and ran very smoothly, thanks to the skills of Steve Smith Junior in organising the order of play and Steve Smith Senior in doing all the leg work by getting players and umpires to tables as required,
The attendance was much greater this year and if a similar number enter next year we will need a venue with more tables so as to allow time for more matches.
If anyone is at a loose end, or knows someone who may be bored whilst you’re playing in the tournament this Sunday……………….
