Congratulations to ExElle (Women's) and S&L Cartel (Open) for their victories at COWIN in Glasgow last weekend.
Thanks to Finlay Watson of Stirling for an excellent video highlight reel from the Women's event that you can see above!
Masters players please read this; sections C and E require immediate action. Also please forward this to team-mates and other masters players!
*** A. Survey Results. Masters Nationals is happening! ***
The first Junior Development session run by GBJW in Windsor last weekend was a great success. The girls faced freezing temperatures and snow but this didn’t impact upon a huge turn out of almost 40 young women coming together to learn new skills and play together.

Update 16th Feb:
Please see below for an update on definite and provisional dates and venues for outdoors competitions in 2017. All of the dates below are fixed. Venues in bold are confirmed. All other venues are provisional, so please do not make any travel plans or book accomodation based upon them! As you will see we are still working on a few gaps. We do understand that early confirmation is important and we are working on it.
* Please note that in the Open division we are making some changes in 2017 to accommodate all the teams that usually want to enter. At OWT2 and OWT3, there will be a second venue in a different location to accommodate some of the B&C division teams. Our goal is to have venues and a competition structure that will reduce travel times for most of the teams attending that second venue. In the information below we are assuming that the events labelled B-"north" and B-"south" will cater for all C-Tour teams as well as B-Tour teams.
Note also that the following dates have now been fixed:
OWT3 15-16 July
Regionals (all divisions) 29-30 July
Congratulations to the University of St Andrews, the new BUCS Men's Indoor Champions. Victory in the final over Sussex (who had won their prior matchup on Saturday) finally wrested the title from Birmingham's dynasty of champions.
In Division 2, Durham seemed to improve with each passing game on Sunday, finally pulling out a comfortable 8-2 win in the final despite closer games in earlier rounds.
Due to the existence of a waiting list for CXIN next weekend, we feel confident in publishing the schedule nice and early for once! If anyone does drop out, the replacement team will take their seeding - without affecting any other team's times of play.
