Friday the 9th of September saw Greenlands hosting an Open “Powerplay Triples” The First chance to show off their brand new Playing Surface.
3 Games of 8 end Triples with the added bonus of a “Powerplay” Where all shots counted double for the team playing their “Joker”
Teams were allowed to only win one prize which guaranteed Eight Teams a share of the prize pool, winners were as follows.
First Place 6 Points +29 “Greenmachine” Peta Rhodes, Lisa Bonsor & Pete Bonsor Greenlands
Runners up 6 Points +19 composite team of Maureen Hanratty, Graham Shoots & John Pooley.
Third place 6 Points +12 went to Steve Baxter, Carol Thorpe & Gary Thorpe from Vistabella (11th hour replacements)
Other prizes went to the Highest Winning Margin from Each of the 3 Games, Teams from San Luis, Greenlands and Indalo.
Lucky out of the hat winners Bonalba.
Bradman prize for last place Javea.
The “Powerplay” came into effect on several occasions and crucially on a couple of occasions made the difference between a win and a loss, none more so than game 3 between Ian Kenyon & John Pooley who were both unbeaten before the game, John and his team scoring a 5 Doubled to 10 to take out second place.
Thank you to all players who attended on the day especially from the ones travelling from outside of the Torrevieja area. El Cid in the North to Indalo in the South (316K apart!)
Special mention to our owners, firstly for providing us with the First Class Facility we now have, secondly for excellent catering, Enrique and his staff coped brilliantly with the volume of €7 lunches on the day. Which were enjoyed by all.
Greenlands’ next Open will be 23rd April “St George’s Day” Triples, get your name in to Pete Bonsor ASAP as it is filling fast.
