Friendly Fixtures

These are arranged, on a home and away basis, with other local clubs.

These are normally held at 3:30 on a Thursday or Friday.

The Rabbits Manager will ask all those who are interested to enter their names on a list on the notice board by about the end of March.

He will then allocate all players to fixtures so that the available places are shared equally over those prepared to play.

The teams are not chosen by any form of ranking or past performance.

Changes to the list of names for a match will have to be adjusted as the date approaches so the Manager will also ask for volunteers who might be able to make themselves available at short notice.

Late applicants will be accommodated, as far as possible, as these adjustments are being made.

Buster Ramsden Trophy

The format is Better Ball Stableford with each pair's score added together for the team score.

Each team plays two home and two away matches with up to twenty members per side.
