The League Program for the 2021 season has been cancelled.

 

The Bedford Cup will take place on Wednesday 4th August 2021.

 

The Friendly fixtures will take place from June 22nd onwards (Covid-19 willing). The Norfolk fixture has been rescheduled to August 24th to allow the president to have a game against his own county. The fixtures on June 1st and June 8th will be reviewed after the Government announcement on May 17th but seem unlikely to take place at this time. I will let you know after the announcement whether we will be able to play these two matches.

 

The Championships will take place on September 18th At Diss & District BC and Scole & District BC

Directions to Sawbridgeworth BC

 

As you enter the A1184 London Road through Sawbridgeworth from either direction you turn into Bell Street by the White Lion pub (by the pedestrian set of traffic lights ). Bell Street is a one way street and after about 50 metres you take the first small turning on the right into the car park. The footpath to the club is located in the left hand corner of the first car park. If this car park is full follow the road round to the second part of the car park. Parking is free at weekends.
