2018 Past Times Finals at Sutton B.C.
The Past Times Finals at Sutton B.C. on Saturday 15 September was blessed with fine, mainly sunny weather.
In the  Men's Final Old Coulsdon took an early lead which they managed to retain throughout the match.
In the Ladies Final both rinks were closely fought until around the half way stage after which Purley Bury then built up a significant lead on rink 2 resulting in a comfortable overall win for them.   The scores were :
     Ladies Final :  Purley Bury 39, Old Coulsdon 29
     Men's Final :  Old Coulsdon 51, Wallington 36
Annual trophies were presented to the winning teams and gift tokens to each finalist team.  Keepsake plaques will be engraved and given to each finalist team for their retention.  The nett proceeds of the competition entry fees will be donated to a worthy charity actively serving the local Surrey community and which will be announced shortly.  Photographs of the finalists will be posted shortly on the Past Times Pictures page of this S&DBA website.
Our grateful thanks are due to Sutton B.C for allowing us to us their excellent facilities.  Many thanks also to Charlie Murphy who umpired immaculately.

Method of Running the S&DBA Competitions
The method of running the competitions changed in 2013 - please read the information posted on the 'Competitions' page.   Contrary to some rumours it is not necessary for individual competitors to possess a computer or have access to the internet.   All information related to the competitions is being e-mailed to the Hon Sec's and the S&DBA Delegates of the affiliated clubs for them to distribute / make available to their own clubs' competitors.
