Knockout competitions: 1st round
There are 9 teams that play their home matches at Hermits, and are drawn at home in the 1st round. It's a lot of teams and it means there are some clashes for rooms on normal home nights. Please contact me, Phil Craven, to confirm, and book, when your team's 1st round match will be played. Just turning up on your usual home night may work, but it may not, and we don't want any opponents turning up when there is no room available.
Information available in the Hermitage
The following are now on the noticeboard in the first room:-
- The full Hermits teams 2018/19 league fixtures list for each division.
- A list of all registered players, by team, with contact numbers.
- A list of all the scheduled league matches to be played at Hermits, whether involving a Hermits team or not. Note: they do not include cup matches as they are arranged as required, or Keighley League matches, so, if you need to arrange a match please contact Phil Craven to check room availability.

Train to be a table tennis coach
The Bradford League needs more qualified coaches to coach players at all levels, but especially the new players who are coming into the game.

If you are interested, contact Chris Town (01274 686504).
