The draws for our annual Fours and Triples Tournaments are now published on our competitions page. Thanks as always are due to our tournament sponsors - Focus Investments - and good luck to all our competitors as the tournament gets underway on Wednesday evenings and Sunday mornings in FebruaryPlastic Cup Recycling
In common with lots of businesses across the UK WIBC is concerned that we do our bit for the environment. From Monday 15th January we ask that all our members place their plastic drinking water cups in the recycling bins with the blue lids available on the sides of the green, rather than in the litter bins which are emptied into our general refuse. Thank you for your cooperation.New WIBC film by John Guile
