The next tournament, the final one of 2019, takes place on Saturday. It is The Plough at Eaton Festive Tournament — a fun, timed contest.
Members should check in by 1.15pm for a 1.30pm start. Entry is £3 and festive attire is encouraged. The winners will receive meal vouchers courtesy of the sponsors and there will also be a prize for the best festive-themed outfit. Mulled wine and mince pies will be served.
The A B and C teams completed their final matches of the winter season after having to wait for the courts to thaw last weekend. The A team (Alex Grocott, Andrew Giltrap, Peter Wardlaw and Adam Goodall) played host to Cuddington B and won 6-2 to finish second in Division One.
The B team (Beth Hitchen, Laurence Poulain, Larissa Walls and Elliott Pearson) hosted Holmes Chapel B. They finished winners of Winter Division Three and will compete in Division Two in the spring season.
The C team faced Holmes Chapel A in a reversed fixture. James Clemens, Rob McNinch, Jim Worthington and Nick Wilkins went down 2.5–5.5 — they will, however, remain in Division Three for the spring season.
