Paid Up Members Tournament - 23rd April
The Paid up members tournament was well attended, and managed to balance a full range of experience across a round robin tournament.
Doubles Matches were played to the best of seven games, then one of the players from ech side, swopped ends and another seven games played. Individuals built up their own "games score", and these were tallied up at the end of the day.
The format was a good handicap system, as was shown by the tournament being narrowly won by an average skill player, namely myself, Martin Sweeney!
Mary Edwards Tournament - 11th June
The Mary Edwards Tournament was a competitive event, with a number of strong players attending. The format, doubles matches played to 7 games, and a full round robin draw meant that each pair had six matches to play, recording a game score for each match.
The competition was tight, with the deciding match being the last one played on the day, and the result coming down to whether one pair managed to gain 4 or more games from the last match. After some nail biting, the winning pair managed to score 5 of the last 7 games, ensuring victory with a narrow games margin.
The champions of the Mary Edwards Tournament were Jim McLagan and Graham Sheffield. Congratulations on a hard fought win.
