Welsh Open 2018

Welsh Open Draughts Championship


The Welsh Open Draughts Championship was a hard fought battle with 5 people all with a shout of winning at the halfway point.  Games were hard fought and played with good sportsmanship.   A really nice event enjoyed by all participants and spectators.  

The venue was the Plough Hotel in Knighton in Wales.   

Congratulations to Tony Boyle on a fine win.  Well done.

And thanks also to Gordon Mills and Graham Young for running this event and all who attended.
