As the entries for the tournament were unfortunately low this year, the four class singles events were merged into two groups.
The top group played a swiss format competition to advanced rules for the Abbey Challenge Cup, and this was won by Jon Palin with 4/5 wins. Jonathan Isaacs was runner-up also with 4/5 wins, having lost to Jon Palin.

The second group also played a swiss format competition but to mixed handicap or advanced rules, depending on the handicap of the weaker player, for the Monteith Bowl, which has traditionally been the premier cup for open handicap play at Southwick.
The winner was club player David Cook who won all his games.

I have temporarily hidden the calendar box as I have not had time to populate it with forthcoming events. Sorry!
Threatening skies and waterlogged lawns greeted the players today at the start of the Alternate Strokes Competition at Southwick.
Let's hope it improves.
(At least the Manager was in the dry!)
Play was abandonned yesterday afternoon due to water-logged lawns. Today starts with the Hemmings in the lead with 3 wins out of 3 games and three rounds to go.
Some sunshine at last!
Georgeen and Colin Hemming maintained their leading position, despite losing one game to Pat and Richard Jackson. Second place was taken by Jane Collier and Ann Brookes, so the event proved to be an all-Colchester affair!
