We had a wonderful day at the finals competitions.  All three tournaments ended at the Golden Hoop with a 7-6 score.

The winners were:

Open singles: Steve Marsh

Doubles: Jenny Emby and Andrew Dorling

Restricted Singles: Phil Porter

Congratulations to them all.

It was a pleasure to welcome Joan Maynard’s daughter Anita and son Andrew to present Phil with The Joan Maynard Memorial Cup.  Anita sent me the following message afterwards:

“Thanks again Brian , for yesterday and all the energy you put in, to making it such a successful event. Everyone made us feel so welcome. Of course, above all, your tribute to mum.  Forever grateful. Anita”

Our thanks must go to Chris Cave who organised all three competitions and the excellent weather for the finals.

Our thanks also to Fran who organised Joan’s tea in the Restricted preliminaries and for the cakes in the finals.
