CUTwC and tiddlywinks news

Latest notices

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. This is likely to continue over the Long Vac, with arrangements for Michaelmas 2021 still TBC.


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.
