Readers will know that the BCA will be hosting the IBCA European Individual Championship in 2007 as part of our 75th anniversary celebrations. We are delighted to report that we have identified a superb venue for the event: St Aiden’s College in the beautiful cathedral city of Durham. We are now ready to sign a contract with the College.

The Championship will take place from 13 to 24 August 2007. Your Committee has decided that the BCA will fund five UK players to participate in the event. We shall continue to keep you updated.
