On Wednesday 15th we had another morning of Club Championship Finals: the Ladies’ & Men’s Pairs. Most of the week has been chilly and Wednesday was no exception; not easy for the players, some well “layered up” against the cold, trying to negotiate variable, gusty winds and not much fun for the spectators, also wrapped up in a variety of warm coats, woolly hats & scarves!!

In the Ladies’ pairs it was Ngaio Baldwin & Jane Hamill v Mary Lockley & Caroline Smyth, with Mary & Caroline the winners. The Men’s match was Neil Morrison & Ian Kenyon v Giuseppe Galelli & Keith Jones. It was a close finish but Neil & Ian took the trophy.
