On the 8th May the Eastern Area launched an open entry Club Team League which attracted 6 teams one of which travelled from Wales.
It was an event where players were not fighting for ranking points but for the pride of their club.
After a hard day’s fighting Norwich ‘A’ just edged out Bedford JC to take the first ever League Championship.
Each team was guaranteed 5 matches and where else other than in a team league can you guarantee that many contests to a senior graded player.
We intend to run the next team league event at the same time in 2017.
Next year’s event will be the same format for the men but we will reappraise the ladies section in the hope that we can kick start a ladies division. Clubs interested in next year’s league meeting should contact the East, remember you do not need the names of the players and there is no restriction on guest players on the day, all we need is the registration of the club. In the meantime after receiving such positive feedback from those attending we will run a senior team event in October in Thetford but it will be on a knockout system and with a different format as we intend to retain the identity of the league.
