Despite the awful weather, all 16 players turned up for the parent/child tournament on Sunday 17 March 2013 – so well done to everyone involved!! We managed to get in 5 rounds before taking a break, only to find that there were 3 pairs in contention for the top prize! They all played another round, which left 2 pairs with equal scores : Laurence (playing as an adult) & Alice Kirk and Joanne & James Williamson – so they braved the rain once again and finished the afternoon with a play-off.
In the end Laurence & Alice won by 1 game, so they went away with the trophy! Silver medals went to the Williamson’s and bronze to Setsuko & Marcus Whelan. Following them by just 1 game was Sue & Samantha Manton.
Thank you to all the players and supporters – I think everyone enjoyed themselves even though it was so cold, wet and miserable!
