2018 British Matchplay ready to tee off in Dorridge PDF Print E-mail
Sunday 29th July sees the BMGA tour make a welcome return to the old course Dorridge, Solihull, for the British Matchplay Singles
Championship. This weekend sees a Midlands Minigolf Club double header weekend, with the Midlands Open taking place on Saturday 28th July.

The Matchplay Championship will be held over two phases, the first being a league format with round-robin matches contested between the players in each group. This will be followed by a knock out stage where the players at the top half of each group play each other for the overall top places in the competition and the remainder play each other for the Pool B placings

With 24 entrants, we anticipate that the group stage will consist of six groups of four players, with the top two in each group plus the four best 3rd place finishers competing for the Matchplay Championship, with the remaining eight players competing for Pool B honours.

All matches will be played over eleven holes, using normal matchplay rules, and always produces one of the closest, competitive events on the BMGA tour.

As is traditional in the event, the random draw for the groups will take place on the Saturday at the course, after the Midland Open. Once again there will be no seeding for players, this always throws up some very enticing draws as the groups take shape. The random draw continues throughout the competition, with the knock out sections also seeing the FA Cup style draw in place for each round. 

There will be three former Champions in the field, will one of them prevail or will a new name join the illustrious list of British Matchplay Champions?

Group 1:
Martyn Williams, Will Donnelly, Matty Exall, John McIver

Group 2:
Henri Myers, Marion Hartley, Ruth Burke, Rocky Bullin

Group 3:
Andy Wilde, Terry Exall, Paul Johnson, Laura Skinner

Group 4: 
Chris Harding, David Hartley, Stephen Skinner, Dave Donnelly

Group 5:
Chris Smith, Steve Lovell, Dave Gomm, John Sharp

Group 6:
Michael Smith, Simon Brown, Owen Johnson, Andy Exall
