Attention all clubs – the next competition in the calendar is The Bob Robinson Trophy, with a club award plus an individual award for the best PDI.

The Competition is now open for entries
Closing date for entries is Sunday 17 September 2023

One Section: PDI
One Category: Open

The competition format has changed and will be run as a Knockout competition over several rounds; as images are knocked out of the competition, feedback will be given on the image.

Full details are included in the 2023 Rules

All club members are invited to attend the competition and hear the feedback given on the images entered; there is no cost to attend and sit in the audience, refreshments are provided during the break in proceedings (tea/coffee/biscuits).


The venue does not allow you to bring your own food onto the premises, although there are lots of places close by where you can buy your lunch you would have to find somewhere to eat your lunch.

However, there is an option to purchase a hot lunch which can be enjoyed in the venue; this will cost £10 and will consist of a main meal (a choice of hot pot or cheese & onion pie and chips) and dessert.

Tickets are available for you to purchase from the Portal; the final day for ordering food will be 17th September as I have to give the numbers to the chef at Elmbank

If you have any questions please email and we will get back to you as quickly as possible.
