End of 2019 Season Tournament

The end of the season tournament was held on Friday 26th April from 7.30pm with 16 members taking part. As in the past, the intense 7’s format was used for the games, with everyone playing everybody once over 5 rounds with the intention of amassing the highest score with the minimum of errors.

Once again it proved to be a close fought competition, with the leaders changing round by round, and everything only being settled in the final round. The ladies champion for the fourth year running was Ella, who beat Hayley to the title by just one point. Kieran was the men’s champion, and again the margin of victory over 2nd placed Matt was just one point. The trophies were presented to the winners by the Chairman of the club, Norman.

The tournament was again organised by Rosie, who even managed to take part this year, leaving the scoring and scrutiny to Becks, Adrian and Norman. This is a hard, fast and intense tournament, which tests individual skills and stamina, and was greatly enjoyed by all who took part.

The club also took the opportunity to say goodbye to Manoj Reddy who was playing in his last tournament before moving to the US.
