Mick Langley Announcement

It is with great sadness that the TVSL informs you of the passing of Mick Langley on Saturday 14th July, 2018.

Mick was a true character of our local game, a Slough boy through and through. His snooker-playing days took him from Slough Working Menís Club to the Leopold, and from Sara Lee Sports to most recently Maidenhead Conservatives Club. In passing, he was always pleased to give his opinion on whether his beloved Manchester United would win the league by 15 or 20 points this season, while sharing his plans for the next trip abroad to warmer climes to follow the England cricket team as a loyal member of the Barmy Army.

Mick never allowed his reliance on a wheelchair for most of his life to hinder him. It did, however, lead him down the path to two of his proudest achievements. In 1984 in Stoke Mandeville, Buckinghamshire, Mick claimed a Paralympic bronze medal in Snooker. Undeterred by his defeat in the semi-final four years prior, he then went on to become Paralympic Snooker Champion in 1988, claiming the gold medal in Seoul, Japan.

Mick will be remembered as an occasionally abrasive, but more so a friendly and happy soul. He will be missed by many, and the TVSL sends our regards to his friends and family.

Details of Mickís funeral will be communicated as and when we hear of them.

Hello All

Just a note from Cliff Ayres from the Chalfont St Giles Club.

There is only a male WC at this venue, could you please let any female spectators you may take know this.

Hello All.

I've played in the Premier A league for some years; and all Premier A teams use good quality match balls on match nights.

I've just started to play for a Premier B team and no teams I played against so far use match balls!

Emails have been sent out in the past stating good match balls were to be use, this is obviously not the case in Premier B.

We know money is tight; but many players in Premier A have clubbed together and purchased their own sets. Aramith Tournament Balls cost around £120.00 per set.

Obviously the purchase of new match balls wont happen right away, so any player with their own set please take them to home and away games, so they can be used for that match.
If the away player is happy with the quality of balls being used on an away match nights then just use those.

Thank you

The Committee.

I've just been reminded by another player that all tables should be brushed, blocked and ironed before a match, this would improve the enjoyment of playing on match nights.
