Tolworth First Founding - Home Of Team OB

The OB Bunker - St Pauls Hall, Chessington (courtesy of Google Maps)
There is a dark, sordid, and slightly damp place in Chessington, where only the brave or foolish venture. Buried into the broken ground next to the Great Park of Hooks, and just up the road from the Circle of Aces, the bunker of Team OB ominously bulges. This lair is filled with the rotting bodies of the fallen, echoes sharply with the laughter of the mad and confuses all with the multitude of arse-less chaps and a particularly greasy sex swing (stamped 'Property of The Gimp').

Melo-Horror ehy, got to love it. Is that even a thing? If not, coined it, ya'll who make melo-horror films and novels in the future owe me bucks! Anyway, I refer of course not to some kind of weird house of debauchery, no, I speak of Team OB's home club; Tolworth First Founding! We have mentioned our games hut every so often, but thought it time to spread the good word of our home stadium! The shrewder of you may have noticed that it is based in Chessington, but named Tolworth. Like the St Louis Rams, we've been forced to relocate to a better space for our needs (as a Wimbledon fan franchising upsets me deeply, but luckily we're only 10 mins from our old hall) but it would have been a ball-ache to change our name. Also the FA won't allow that silly shit to happen anymore either way. Wait, we're not a football club. Get back on track Dan.

The short version of this post, in a nut shell if you like, is:

Come to South-West London and play some games with us!


We have great player base of Dropzone players (surprise surprise), which features both us salty, miserable mongrels to more yippity, eager pups, so you'll be sure to find a level which suits you. Mr Megaty Mikety will also be running an escalation campaign starting in Feb, which is a great opportunity to start a new army and build it up.


If you're looking for something a little different on a week you'll also be sure to find X-Wing, Bushido, Guildball, Infinity, some kind of heathen game set around 38,000 years from now, MTG, board games, and a host of others.

For details of the location head over to the Tolworth First Founding Facebook page and check it out! You can also send me an email at obteamdzc@gmail.com, and I can fill you in on the deats.

    1. One of our guys also works in Canary Wharf, and he manages to make it down for 7. From the wharf it is probably a little over an hour, including walking time. If you fancy coming down one eve pop us an email and I'll get something sorted out for you!

    2. After posting and looking at the pics, I realised just how stereotypically English this post was. All it's missing is someone drinking tea (which for the record, I was between taking pics).

    3. Do the English keep tabs on the St. Louis Rams? There are better teams...

    4. Not really, I just know they're moving to LA and wanted to use it as an analagy.

      I have a couple of friends who are Steelers fans though. I did one of those tests, which told me I should follow the Cardinals...

    1. It differs from club to club, so it's impossible to give you any specifics I'm afraid! We charge £3 a night, which covers hall rental and other bits and bobs, but I know others can be more expensive than that. In our old hall we weren't charged rent, so it only cost £1 a night!

      I think a lot of clubs our like ours, so housed in Scout or school huts, but we have a fair few dotted about in pubs and not to forget the FLGS. Most clubs don't tend to communicate with each other, in my experience.
