“But didn’t you recently tell us about the Newcastle Open 2017?” Well, yes we did, but with fixture congestion in the autumn the UK Tour returns to the North East in the spring.

The UKBGF Tour reached its northernmost stop in October as we reached round 9, the Newcastle Open. Held in NEBA’s very own home, 56 players took part, including sizeable contingent from the north-west as well as a few southerners undaunted by the journey (helped, as Tariq and I found out, by the tables on the trains being perfectly sized for a P40 board – the perfect way to while away the time!)
