In January all the County teams will travel to various venues across the country to compete in the Masters County Championships. Historically we have been successful at this event, so fingers crossed!
The Lancashire Silver Masters Tournament will take place over the weekend of February 1st and 2nd. The tournament will take place at Markland Hill in Bolton as follows:
