CUTwC and tiddlywinks news

Latest notices

There will be a meeting via Zoom from 7:30pm on Wednesday the 12th of May.


Tiddlywinks is normally a game played with a group of people sociably standing around small tables in a nice warm room; this aspect of CUTwC meetings has obviously been rendered impractical by COVID-19 safety concerns. As such, for the last few months, CUTwC members have been "meeting" on Zoom.

The existence of in-person CUTwC meetings in the Easter Term 2021 is still TBD, based on government and university guidance, although at least some students will be in Cambridge. We are tentatively expecting meetings to continue virtually via Zoom, with a Nick Ashley tournament held as people can arrange games.


The ETwA National Singles (and ETwA Congress) has been postponed until the COVID-19 situation is resolved and it is considered safe for the community to play.
Watch this space and etwa.org, and please stay safe.
