Judging for both events commences at 8.00pm prompt, but doors are open from 7.00pm for viewing North Cheshire’s exhibition displayed around the main hall. Early arrivals are able to reserve the best seats, but there is ample accommodation for over 200 people and a large free on-site car park.

We anticipate a strong entry from in excess of 20 top clubs for both competitions and look forward to welcoming a strong contingent of supporters from all participating clubs to Poynton’s Civic Centre in June. Refreshments will be available during the interval, at which time our famous raffles will be drawn.
