The Knockout returns!
Last played in 2019, the Knockout is back. Following the successful return of the Essex League, the summer Rapid Knockout takes its place to supply team competition throughout the summer months.
Everything as it was in 2019 including the entry fees.
The following teams are competing in the 2022 competition:
Wanstead B – Knockout Champions 2019
Format is unchanged: five board teams, each match two rounds of G20+10.
There is a Plate competition for teams losing their first round match.
Round dates, fixtures to be played by:
R1 by Fri 8 July;
R2 (QF) by Fri 29 July extended to 3 August;
SF by Fri 2 September;
