The pub is in Stephens Drive Longwell Green / Warmley Bristol . There is a roundabout on the Bristol Ring Road at Longwell Green where you can see a Bowlplex and Mc Donalds etc. on one side and a large Asda on the other. Barrs Court is very near Asda.

There is a map here:

All are welcome! The competitions are every Sunday at 8.00pm but there are usually games being played most nights and the table can often be busier than on competition night. (especially Fri and Sat when they are open till 2.00am!)  8)

This week's competition clashed with a rescheduled crib fixture. A fun event was missed by those who had to be elsewhere.

Some excellent blocking this week! Apologies to my partner for not being able to clinch those meatballs.  :oops: Jude assures us she will wear her lucky shirt next time!

Results for 19/02/06:

Two round Robins ....Congratulations to Rich and Tony for winning both contests and every game they played.

1 Rich and Tony "Deadwood" Jordan..................................£16.00 pot.  8)

3 Paul and Seb
4 Jude and Alun

Expandable pics this week for those who want to get a better view of the, erm........... table.

Although Jude wasn't on the podium this week that's no reason not to sneak her into the pics.

Great fun this week!

Nice to see a Bushman turn up. All are welcome anytime.

Amazing to see Martyn perform some pretty impressive snakes in spite of the super-slick surface. The Barenherz Magic Gelb balls are obviously a vast improvement.

Player of the evening must go to Danny who had never played before but picked things up really quick.

2 Matt T and Matt H..................bottle of White  :) plus bonus bottle of red  :D

Fine pub, and a really nice bunch of people. Thanks to all the players for a nice nights foosball.  For those who have a free Sunday night, it's a fun way to spend it here on a blocky foot, shiny surfaced, big sprung traditional Garlando table.

I was teamed up with a new player, Seb from Poland who has only been playing a couple of months. He's really keen, as are all the others. If a couple of the other regulars had turned up we may have had 10 teams or more!!

Just a thought Al, you may wish to address the "put in"........explain that we play(as in real footie) that the team who loses the goal has the serve.

Great night as I said, & look forward to the next visit.

Lovejoy is away camel spotting in Egypt...Should be back soon.

I paid Barrs Court a visit tonight and the place was packed with people queuing to play foos (winner stays on).  8)
The landlady said to me "look what you've started here!"

Bob (Wickwar Ale) was on offer at £1.50 a pint, music was good, and Jude was on form at the back.....another good night!

Hopefully new local rules will be introduced next Sunday which should include tossing and serving. This should stop Rich destroying everyone with his "John Wayne" 5 bar shot everytime he gets the side with the hole.  :wink:
