In Jan 2021, due to Covid, we took the decision to cancel the remains of the year’s Night League.
Jo Pickering comments:
"Another event down and big thanks to Sarum for putting on this forest event at Martin Down. There have been a few changes in the ladies side of things with a good run from Jo on Monday night but all still to play for!
Also to update you on changing fixtures from the recent lockdown. Here is the latest:
Wednesday 23 Dec, BAOC Winchester has unfortunately got to be cancelled due to not being able to obtain permissions. This will now hopefully be 5th Jan with a new location at Hogmoor - Forest event and quite technical! Allan will 100% confirm shortly SOC's postponed event from 3rd Dec is now on 14th Jan and being held in Brockenhurst. They are hoping to put on an additional event later on to make up for the event lost.
WIM's Alderholt (from 2nd Nov) will now be held on 25th Jan and WIM are looking at moving Blandford event to sometime in Feb - date TBC
