After a very successful centenary event in 2011, entries for the 2012 tournament, as well as for the subsequent Charity Tournament, have been very encouraging.
The Charity Open Triples Tournament - where the committee hopes to raise as much as possible to share between its chosen charities - will take place on Sunday September 30.
Applications for this event must arrive by Wednesday August 29 and forms can be obtained as above. The entry fee will be £6 per team and cheques are to be made payable to the Hastings Charity Tournament. Further details are on the event website.
The tournament committee is delighted to announce that Croft Glass Ltd will continue its sponsorship of the event for the fifth year running.
Other sponsors this year will include the Brickwall Hotel at Sedlescombe (which will be giving special rates to bowlers throughout August), Quadron Services and Fibre Services with an additional backer to be announced shortly.
