After discussions and a brainwave thought I had at the beginning of the Year I thought a fixture between two Clubs I represent may be a good and a competitive preseason fixture which could take place every year at the two clubs venues.All members of both clubs showed a great interest in it so it was decided to go ahead and make it a reality.

The first match took place on the 9th August at Barming TT clubs home at the Beechwood Community Centre in Maidstone it took the form of a 4 match table set of matches and a normal match day
Format.All matches were evenly played on all tables and the final result. Being a 23-17 win for Barming,and so taking the new Challenge Shield which has been set up for this feature. Next Years event will take place at Chathams home at the Howard in Early August it should again be a close match and maybe Chatham will win on home Soil!!
