The 2019 district championships were held over two nights with 46 players and 6 divisions.

Numbers this year were down from the last few years. I think the contributing factors to this was the timing of the championships as it was the school holidays and people were either away or spending time with their families. The timing of the event is something we are mindful of and hopeful that we can grow on these numbers for next year. None the less I hope everyone that entered enjoyed their nights and had an opportunity to play different players.

This year we introduced a new form of registration by way of online. I hope everyone who used this platform found the process easy. It also lightened the load from an operational sense.
