Many congratulations to all of our members who attended the KUGB National Championships held in Nottingham for the first year...

For many of our competitors, it was nearly two years since the last time they competed. Win, lose or draw, the conduct and behaviour alongside the excellent performances demonstrated was fantastic to see. As always, the organisation of the event was excellent and the overall standard was extremely high. Well done to everyone.
