Two ladies, aged 90 and 92, came to blows after a fight ensued while on the Slots. It seems that one of the women sat down and won after the other had played the same machine and lost.
The pair previously got into it at the bingo hall back in February. No arrests were made on this occasion.
According to a police spokesperson: "Kent Police has investigated an allegation of harassment following an ongoing feud between two elderly women who attend the Connaught Bingo Club.
"Both parties have been spoken to, and we will not be taking the matter any further."
It has been reported that both ladies, although not acting like ladies, were suspended from the bingo hall and warned to avoid each other.
A Connaught Bingo Club spokesperson said, "This is a private matter between our members. It's a private members club so we have no comment to make."
