As the day for the Annual Championships draws ever closer, the need for volunteer helpers gets bigger!
We are in desperate need of people to help out with finding players and getting them on tables to play matches, getting players to score and also updating the draw sheets that are stuck up on the wall at the far end of the building.
If anyone hasn't entered the Championships but can give us some greatly needed help I would be immensly grateful.
Unless we get some help we may have to resort to using a loud speaker system to alert players that they're needed to play which will also mean us enforcing a rule that if a player is not on the table after 5 minutes of their names being shouted out then they will be scrubbed from that particular competition.
Other leagues use this system but the Worksop Committee have always treid not to as it can be off putting for players when announcements are made.
If anyone can very kindly help out the please e-mail me at


The draw for this season's Annual Championships can now be found on the 'Championships' page on the league's website.

Thank you for your support

If so please contact me and I will pass the relevant details on. 


Can I ask that if anyone that has entered the DTH Doubles next week but cannot now not make the competition, that they inform me as soon as possible as Mick Bell who is organising the event needs to do the draw and write up all of the scorecards etc.
Can people let me know before Saturday at 5.00pm by e-mailing me at
Please remember that if you just don't turn up for the competition then you will be letting down your doubles partner as they won't be able to enter as the competition won't be redrawn on the night.
