Another very successful tournament is now done and dusted, the weather wasn’t too unkind, but some of the evenings were a bit on the chilly side, writes Paul Moffitt.

The Club did it’s own catering this year, which was in the very capable hands of Sue Wood and her large band of helpers. It proved very popular and I’m sure Sue will have her arm twisted to repeat it next year!

In the leagues the men had mixed fortunes whereas the ladies only managed six points from two matches.

The Club went to Topsham on Saturday, for the annual friendly, and managed to come home narrow winners against what is always a very competitive Topsham team.

Results: Tournament: Men’s singles winner was Luke Young of Fleming Park.

Ladies’ singles winner was S Burgess of Romsey.

Open pairs was won by R Tibbles of Mid-Gloucester and E Kavanagh of Tewkesbury.

Open triples was won by L Broom & P & N Stephens all from Lyme Regis.
