Welcome to the 2023 Wychwood
Aunt Sally League Website
Latest News (23/10/23)
FINALS NIGHT RESULTS ARE NOW ONLINE...
If you visit the Results & Reports page, you will find
the results in full of all the action which took place on Finals Night. It was a great night and we thank you all for attending.
And that, as they say, is that.
All over for another year.
All I have left to do is upload the pictures from Finals Night, which I'll do asap
I sincerley hope that everyone enjoyed taking part in our league this year. We know it wasn't perfect, and the sides pulling out of the league after it had started really caught us out. But we will learn from this. We always welcome fresh ideas and opinions, so if you want to have your say then anyone is welcome to attend our AGM, which will be held in February. As soon as we have a confirmed date, I'll send out some emails and post it on here.
I shall now take time to
refresh and recharge before coming back again next year. I hope everyone has enjoyed my reports and the work which goes into this website. Also, my personal thanks go to all the venues who helped out
by hosting competition nights, to all the teams, captains, players, spectators & partners who play such an important role in making this such a great league to take part in.
Stay safe over winter, see you all soon.
Darren, over & out
AND THE 2023 AUNT SALLY WORLD CHAMPION IS.......
He's only gone and retained the title. Congratulations to Rob Bradford, who produced a masterful performance on Saturday at the Charlbury Beer Festival to win the trophy for the second year running. The event was yet again well supported by players from our league, who made the journey to make it another enjoyable event. Rob was the standout player there, and it would have taken something special to have beaten him. Well done matey, and well done to everyone who participated.
NEW RECORD & NEW WORLD CHAMPION - 2022
Just in case anyone has forgotten, I thought this update should remain on here just to show what is possible!
It's been quite a week for a certain individual within our league.
Step up Mr Rob Bradford, who not only set a new Wychwood record last week with 28 dolls (6,6,5,6,5), he then made the trip to the Aunt Sally World Championship at Charlbury beer festival and came away as the new champ!
The Wychwood record was on his home throw at Enstone, which just the night before Rob claimed he hated throwing on!
This beat the previous record, which was 26 dolls (6,5,6,3,6), and was hit by Paul Bennett from the Masons Arms 'A' back in 2014.
On Saturday, Rob breezed his way through to the final held in tricky conditions due to the gusty wind, where he faced previous winner Phil Adams. Phil took the opening leg 3-2, but Rob hit back to chase down Phil's set of 3 in the second leg to level the match. In the cruical decider, Phil again set 3, and with a large crowd watching on, Rob clanged off the 4 required with two sticks in hand.
I am in possession of a fantastic picture taken just after the winning doll was hit, but I think Rob is intending on using the picture as his entry to this years Gurning World Championship so I'll keep it safe for now.
Well done Rob, thats a superhuman effort.
LEAGUE EMAIL ADDRESS:
We are delighted to announce that Loddon Brewery have yet again agreed to be the sponsor of our league. The brewery is family run, and was founded in 2002 by Chris & Vanessa Hearn, and then commenced brewing in 2003. They are based in a 200 year old converted barn on a working farm in Dunsden Green, Oxfordshire, on the rural estate of Lord Phillimore. They brew traditional British craft beers using the finest raw ingredients. In their range of beers is Hullabaloo, which is 4.2% and is rich,nutty & malty, with a dry hop finish. This is a permanent fixture at The Black Prince, and I can certainly say that it is blooming lovely!! They also produce a mighty fine range of Monthly Specials, all of which are excellent additions to any bar. Please give them a try!

CANCELLED & POSTPONED FIXTURES
Just to clarify the process, if you need to postpone a match, you must:
1.Inform the captain or venue of your opponents, ideally at least 24 hours before the match is due to take place
2.Inform the Fixture Secretary
The postponed match should be replayed within 1 month of the original fixture date. Don't forget, you can bring fixtures forwards if required. For example, if you know that half your team is going on holiday at the same time, why not play the fixture before they go?
Contact information for each team can be found on this website
