The Mercia Winter League got under way today on a bright, but cool day at Titchfield Park, Mansfield. A record ten clubs are competing for the winter league title this year, with a good number of the clubs bringing a mix of both established players and newer members who were playing in the Mercia Winter League for the first time. It was great to see so many new faces and we hope they all enjoyed the day.
Our thanks goes to Mansfield PC for hosting this 1st round of the winter league and to all the volunteers who prepared the pistes for the day’s play and kept the refreshments flowing. Our thanks also to John Proctor who was competition organiser for this event.
