With only the occasional hint of rain the Linea Directa Valencian Championships are very much on schedule and through to the semi final stage in all but the Mixed Pairs and Mixed Triples.

In the men’s pairs events holders Ian Kenyon and Tony French of Vistabella went out in round two, failing to progress to the Semi finals which saw an all San Miguel affair in semi final one with Carl Eagle and Bob Nesbit, conquerors of Drew Gerrard and Jason P on the way, facing club mates Chris Collier and Stuart Denholm while Bill Pain and National Singles Champion Martin Foulcer of Vistabella will meet Monte Mar’s Ronnie Cairns and Dave Melville in match 2.

The Ladies Pairs event features the ‘nearly girls’ Carol Broomfield and Peta Rhodes of Quesada against Lynn Greenland and Gail Willshire of San Miguel while Vistabella’s Carol Thorpe and Lyn Watkins, who had earlier disposed of the Ladies National Singles Champion Ann Eagle, and her partner Pat McEwan, play AM Stevenson and Chris Parsons of the Emerald Isle in semi final two.

Monday through to Wednesday features the Mixed Pairs competition at La Siesta, San Miguel and San Luis with matches getting underway at 19am and 2pm after which the action moves to San Luis (Casa Ventura) for the semi finals and finals of all competitions.
