Horley Lions Skittles Tournament 2019.
This is a fun event but all money raised will go to charity and on this occasion we are supporting the Reigate based charity known as “The Lucy Rayner Foundation”.
This is a fun event and the cost of entry for a team of 8 is just £36, which is just about equivalent to a pint of beer per head, the difference here being that every penny raised over the week will be going to this charity funding the service they give.
The qualifying rounds take place between the 1st and 4th July at Horley Cricket Club with those teams that win through to the Plate or Winners final being called back on Finals night, the 5th July. Play will start each night at 7.00pm
