16 players met to contest the MaD Cup, our GC C level tournament. The morning games were played in four blocks with the top two players going forward to the main knockout phase in the afternoon.
The remaining players also entered a knockout competition to win ‘The Plate’ – which turned out to be a box of chocolates, presented to Gillian Symons (Phyllis Court) who beat Paul Brown (Sussex) 7-6 in The Plate final!
Home players Roseann Sullivan and Andrew Jackson both reached the main knockout competition. All games were closely fought with the eventual winner being Jon Carrington (Broadwas) who beat Patricia Mulcahy (Phyllis Court) 7-3. It was definitely a case of our tallest ever winner being given our smallest ever cup!
All the competitors were very complimentary about the welcome at the club and especially the delicious lunch provided by Jan Honeysett and Andrew Lockwood.
