(This is a club match where people chose, in the early part of the year, who they want to play with, then I divide them into two leagues. Everyone in each League (1 & A) plays everyone else in their league whenever they like over the following 2/3 months. The winner of league A plays the No 2 from League 1 and the winner from League 1 plays No 2 from League A. Then the winners play each other to find the trophy winner).
The first match was between Mark & Chris H (Pickled Eggs) and JJ & Tony (Tie Breakers) – and JJ & Tony WON (13:12). Mark & Chris were trying some difficult shots. Tony was pointing very well and JJ was shooting well. It was a very long game - 1 and a half hours. Good job they only had to play one game – we would have been there all night! (Gerry is presenting the trophy to JJ (centre) and Tony).
Val & Dave (Flower Power) played Chris S & Sarah (Latecomers). Chris and Sarah won 13:1 - All over in 20 minutes.
So the final was between Chris S & Sarah and JJ &Tony. JJ and Tony won 13:6.
A sensible length of game, but nevertheless quite exciting.
The watchers enjoyed themselves too.
