Club Night Melees
On the last Tuesday of every month (except December) the club runs a melee. This is usually made up of 4 rounds of 20 minute timed games. Teams are redrawn after every round, trying to avoid the same people playing together more than once if at all possible. Teams are a mixture of triples or doubles depending on numbers. The winner receives the prestigious ‘George Melee’ Trophy to keep for a month and a cash prize of £5, £1 of which is given to George!
In December, we play for the Cobbetts Curry Cup on the day of the club Christmas meal. This was traditionally a curry at the Purbani, Botley but has also been Chinese, Italian, Turkish and English! The winner receives the trophy to keep for a year and, along with the runner-up, bottles of wine.
