Only slight problem was the downpour at about 11am. I’ve never seen the clubhouse fill up so quickly. At least there were some lovely refreshments to keep people happy. After a short delay, we were soon back in full swing.
I hope these photos capture some of the enjoyment of the day.

The Ladies event on the Saturday was played in equally good weather. A glass of prosecco at the end added to the general enjoyment. The winners were sisters Jane and Anne-Marie Baldwin.

As Chair Paul Treacy pointed out at the presentation ceremony, events like this do not just happen and he thanked the umpires who helped to make it a bit more special for the competitors and he thanked Debra Norton and Richard Leversuch who ran the refreshments. The biggest thanks went to Zana Fletcher who did all the hard work, setting up the whole tournament as well as helping to organise finals day itself.
