Date for Braehead Open

Time already to look ahead to next season. Following last season's successful transition to a weekend slot, the Braehead Open is set for Friday, September 30 - Sunday, October 2, at the beginning of the new season. This year's competition will be sponsored by Cardwell Garden Centre.

Thirty-two teams enjoyed the event last time, see here, and here, and here.

Organisers Gary Macfarlane and David Horne are hoping for a similar entry this year. Games start at 6pm on Friday evening and the final will be at 2.30pm on Sunday. All teams will get at least three games and most play four to six games.

The competition is open to all teams, with prize money of at least £2000, and prizes are available for teams under 25, best overseas', seniors', ladies', and Braehead members, as well as the main prize of £650 for the Braehead Open Champions. The entry fee is £180.

Entries are on a first come, first served basis. Contact Gary Macfarlane at:

It promises to be a top quality competition at the beginning of the 2011-12 season.
