At the latest winter tournament on 11 Feb, competition between the six entrants was friendly but fierce. Only two games went to 7-4, all the others ending closer.
All played all, and it was only when Rick Lilley beat Ron Carter in the final round that the destination of the prize bottle of bubbly was decided.
Before the show started, great help was provided by Richard Peperell, Raouf Allim, Keith Toovey and Martin Dock. They all played a crucial part in assessing whether the lawns were going to be safely playable after the spell of very cold weather. My thanks go to them.
One pleasant feature of this event was that no fewer than five clubs were represented amongst six players. One player travelled from Warwick!.
