Fancy Dress

As is traditional on SGP finals night, the two teams finishing at the bottom of the table play off, in fancy dress, for the wooden spoon. This year’s galant entrants were…

Team 2 (or Victoria’s Bee-team)

Team 3 (for the full English Wheelhouse!)

Looking every bit the professional breakfast outfit they are, Team 3 managed to secure the highly coveted (!) wooden spoon and partied like it’s 1999…

About the Summer Grand Prix

The Summer Grand Prix is one of the highlights of the year. It is a great opportunity to play regular competitive games over the summer against other people of a similar standard. And because you play in a team of four, it is also an opportunity to get to know some other people you might not usually play against.

We usually have around twelve teams of four people – seeded one to four. Every team plays against the other teams once, with the No 1 playing the other No. 1, the No.2 playing the No.2, etc. It is a social occasion and we encourage people to stay and watch their team mates and maybe stay for a drink at the end.

The competition runs from May to the end of August. We expect that people will be off on holiday at some point over that period, so there is a system for calling a ‘Sub’ to play for you when you are away.

If you want to give it a try then keep an eye out for information on this website around April/May. Or check the club noticeboard.
