The 14 games each were completed in three days (probably in under 20 hours playing time).

William Prichard adds: Congratulations to Robert on winning The Men's Championship, The Open Championship, the President's Cup and the Open Doubles Championship in the same year for the second time (1st 1998), thus equalling John Solomon's record (1959 and 1964).

Richard Dickson asked Dave Maugham to describe the Maugham bt Fulford +8 game:

  • I had a supershot and missed the ball near II 3rd turn.
  • Rob went to 1-b with a pop
  • I hit the tea-lady and went to 4-b with 2 pops and an OSL Rob missed the short lift with the hoop 3 ball I played a pretty poor turn and managed to peel 4-b before 2-b and then failed 2-b Rob took the hoop 3 ball round and pegged me out, without peeling partner, leaving a ball in IV and the peg ball on the N boundary wired from 2-b by 1-b I took off from the ball in IV and moved the other ball over a couple of yards and rolled to 2-b and failed it.
  • Rob hit my ball and chopped it towards I while taking off to partner and rolled to III leaving the in-lawn ball wired and difficult to rush to 2-b I hit and finished
