Maximum number permitted in the group:
24 members comfortably, but up to 30 is possible.
Location, day and time of meetings:

A brief description of a typical meeting:
We draw for playing partners, usually 3 to a table but may be 2 or4 depending on numbers signing in. A game may be over quite quickly (20-25mins) in which case it may be possible to play another “quick” game with the same partners before tea break. The winners move one way and the losers another so the second /third game is with different partners. At the moment a completion is being held for the person to make the most seven letter words over a six month period. Seven letter words score a bonus of 50 points.
