Meeting Times

We meet on the second and fourth Saturday of every month from 10:00am to 5:00pm (with the occasional exception). The venue is Linton Village Hall, Linton Hill (A229), Maidstone. Detailed directions are here. For details of meeting dates and games, see the diary.

Subscription Details

Our annual subscription stands at 60 (30 for concessions) which covers all 20+ meetings during the year. There is an alternative single-meeting fee of 8 per meeting. Subs can be paid in a single 60 instalment by cash or cheque in January. Alternatively, payment can be made by standing order to the new club account in four quarterly payments of 15.00 (ask the treasurer for the account details if you wish to pay this way). New members get their first two meetings free and are then charged pro-rata for the rest of the year.


Although the club is run on very informal lines, we do have a standing committee.

For new members who don't necessarily know who the committee members are, we've prepared a Meet The Committee page with brief biogs and pictures.

Former chairman Trevor Pearless passed away after a brave battle against cancer earlier in 2010. Long-standing member Andy King replaced him in September of that year. John Legg then replaced Andy who resigned at the end of 2015. Mark Johnson was newly elected chariman at the 2023 AGM when John stood down.

Club rules

Again, although we're generally pretty informal, we do have a few rules. You can read them here. We also have a new Privacy Policy which you can read here.


The club recently acquired a new logo after a large number of submissions by club members. Pete Smith's winning design was chosen by a vote among the membership, and features the Sevastopol cannon in Maidstone High Street.

For the duration of the club's Golden Anniversary in 2021, we used a different version:


We do have them occasionally. About once a year, in fact !
