DBMM One-dayer


MKWS will be organising DBMM one day team event on Saturday 14th January 2023. The format will be similar to that fomulated by Ray Briggs for his successful Guildford tournament and used for last year’s MKWS One- dayer. Although a team event, individual entries are welcome; the organisers will group individuals to either complete or form new teams. Teams do not have to represent clubs.

Please note the teams listed below are still subject to change, as we are still accepting entries, and therefore individual players may be relocated to avoid army list clashes or form new teams.
