8th April

Morning all,

Sadly, the Tuesday and Wednesday indoor leagues have now finished - but, do not despair, the summer league is only two and a half weeks away!  Couldn't you tell during the week with all the rain and hail storms we were getting!

Anyway, the confirmed fixtures list is attached.  Five divisions of eight, with no byes this year!  I'm sure there are no clashes for those pubs and clubs with two or more teams, but, please give it another check and let me know if there are any.

Please bear in mind, as discussed at the AGM in January, we will not accept any postponements this year (except for really extenuating circumstances notified to, and cleared by, the secretary).  If a team doesn't turn up, it will lose the points.

Some result cards have already been distributed.  If you haven't got yours yet, don't panic, they'll be with you before the season starts.

For those of you who have supported our Prostate Cancer fundraising over the past few weeks - whether it be at our Bicester or Banbury charity nights, or with individual donations - let me thank you once again, you have been terrific.  We have raised a massive total of £1347.  Thank you.

We're not stopping there!  We will be holding an Aunt Sally Charity afternoon at the Shakespeare on Sunday 5th May .  It'd be great to see you there.

Morning all.


Apologies for the late report this week - been very busy!

In our first Inter League match against the Yarnton League (now known as the Sam Butler Challenge Cup) on Wednesday, we went down 16-14, with the result being decided in the very last leg.

Yarnton won the 8 a side 4-2 with scores of 26-24, 23-21 and 21-24.

We then won the four a sides, the triples and the pairs - all by 4-2.

Last match of the night, and Yarnton won the singles 6-0.

Despite the result, it was a terrific night, meeting up with so many old aunt sally friends.

We finish off the indoor season this coming Wednesday with a Charity Night, raising funds for Prostate Cancer UK.  Haven't a clue how many are going to turn up but we'd love to see you there.



Here we go then!  Just 4 weeks and we're into the summer season.

At the moment we have 40 definite teams - down a couple from last year but it gives us five divisions of eight, with no byes.  I am still waiting for confirmation from another two pubs whether they'll be entering or not.  If they do, then we'll have four divisions of eight and Division Five will be one of ten teams.

Based on us just having the 40 teams, the first draft fixture list is attached.  If we do get to the situation of making division five ten teams then the fixtures for those teams in the first four divisions will not change but division five will - and I'll issue another list.  Understood?  Good.

Don't forget, we have the indoor league charity night at the Ex's next Wednesday (3rd April) - can't really open it up to the whole of the summer league 'cos we won't get them all in the hall. But then, we have another 'open' charity event at the Shakespeare on Sunday 5th May.
