Touch My Brum 2019 – The Groups

The groups for TMB 2019 are as follows. We have tried to ensure that teams are not going to be playing their neighbours in the group rounds. Group G has it slightly easier due to being a group of three – this means we will work out an equivalent average score for the afternoon rankings.
