Despite the inclement weather of the past week the response to our upcoming Winter League has been most encouraging. Thank you so much for the vote of confidence and we can guarantee that this year’s league will measure up to the standard you have come to expect at West Waterford. The paper work is complete and the twelve teams have been drawn up. The league will be run over 4 qualifying rounds with a team’s best 4 cards counting for their total in each round. The top 8 teams will qualify for the match-play stage. Round 1 will commence on Monday November 10th and will run for the week up to the following Sunday November 17th. As well as playing for your team you are also eligible for the weekly prizes awarded in four categories.
