Well no luck for the Abingdon League in the World Championships this year.
Our own players got knocked out before the quarter finals with Roger Goodall taking the trophy and the prizemoney.

If you know and play Aunt Sally you’ll know that Charlbury Beer Festival started the WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS a few years back.
Last year our own Abingdon League Barry Parker was runner-up in the competition going out to Henry Johnson of Yarnton of all places !
There aren’t many Abingdon players in the fray and there are a few places left – it’s limited to 32 playing all heats on the afternoon.
It’s free to enter (past the Beer Fest entry fee) and there’s a trophy and the bragging rights of being a WORLD CHAMPION at something!
See http://www.charlburybeerfestival.org/aunt_sally.htm for details and registration by email.
Oh and there’s a Beer Festival which has great beer/ciders, food and entertainment throughout the day and proceeds to local charities. Entry is £10.00 and gets you 2 drinks tokens & the official glass. Non beer drinkers & Pimms drinkers £5.00 entry. Under 18s free.
Enter the competition or go in support of our own and have a great day out!
Good Luck Abingdon !
