We had a programme of 11 tournaments planned for 2020 open to non-members as well as members. (This is in addition to various events organised purely for members, and matches between clubs.) The programme has had to be considerably modified due to lockdown precautions and government guidance, and is still in flux, but tournament play is now again possible, with some modifications to support social distancing and to make play as safe as possible.
Please refer to the calendar on this site, and news items, and the club emailed newsletter for up to date information.

# All except the tournaments marked with a hash are CA Calendar Fixtures and you can enter them on the CA website. You can get further information about them by using the Enquiries form to send a message to James Death, the Tournament Secretary. Those with a # are run by the club or Federation or by invitation and so can only be entered by contacting their Manager.
* Those marked with an asterisk are likely to require all the lawns. For the others, one or more of the bowling greens are likely to be available..
Directions and information about food, drink and accommodation is available for Tournament Visitors.
The club also runs a number of club competitions, in which matches are played by arrangement between the players at times to suit them (subject to deadlines imposed to ensure that they are completed!) during the season. Members who have logged in can find further information about those, and the trophies for both those and the tournaments, in the menu to the left.
