The Leek and District Domino League was set up about thirty years ago by the present Chairman - (Mad) Melvin Goldstraw. Whilst Melvin may well have been mad to look after this organisation for so many years his nickname comes from his other long term hobby as a disc jockey.
All games are run on a Thursday night during the winter months starting at 8-30 pm. Each team is made up of at least 6 players and an evenings play consists of 3 games of doubles and 6 games of singles, so each player plays a doubles and a singles game. A point is awarded to each winner of a game and the team with the most points at the end of the evening is awarded an extra 2 points. The teams with the most points at the end of the season receive trophies. There are also individual trophies for those with the highest individual and pair scores.
The main aim of the league is to have a laugh with an element of honest competition.
If you would like to set up a team in your pub or club within a reasonable distance of Leek please contact Melvin on this link Contacts or on 01538 300314.
