POTOC host a range of local events throughout the year and the programme for our 2022 events is shown here.
So far in 2022 we have successfully hosted the annual Laurie Bradley Score Event on New Year's Day at Park Hall. We have also held local events at Downs Banks, our new area Cheddleton Heath and at Biddulph Grange Country Park.
Our Summer Park League is a league series of 5 events held in parks. The next event in the Park League is at Tunstall Park on 21st May. These events are particularly suitable for newcomers and there are always plenty of people who will be on hand to offer friendly advice and support to beginners should it be required. Everyone was a beginner once and we always welcome newcomers into our sport.
In August our annual Summer score event and BBQ will be held at Brough Park and finally in September we are holding an Urban event at Hanley which will be part of the West Midlands Urban League.
