The NSWBA is conducting a survey about the Monday night championship session. This considers its current format and timing and possible changes that could be considered, depending on feedback.
An email with the link below has been sent directly to current and past players of the session (except those who have opted out of receiving NSWBA emails). However the survey is open to other interested parties as well. http://www.Swiftpage8.com/survey/MonNight2018
We would be grateful if you could spare some time to complete this survey. Feedback will be taken into account in future design of the calendar.

NSW repeated our performance from 2017 by qualifying for all 4 finals and winning 3 of them. Once again there was an excellent spirit among the teams who all supported each other. Our distinctive blue team jackets also meant we stood out everywhere we went (as well as keeping us warm)!
The Youth team dominated their round robin, but then had to come from behind to beat SA in the final, completing a 3rd successive win in the event.
The Seniors won their round-robin and also comfortably beat ACT in the final.
The Open finished 2nd in the round robin, beat Victoria in the 2nd v 3rd playoff, and came from behind in the last set to win the final against ACT.
The Women also finished 2nd in the round robin, comfortably beat SA in the 2nd v 3rd playoff, and narrowly lost to WA in the final.
