At 1430 on Day 1, lawns 1 and 2 were playing at 12 seconds; lawn 3 and 4 at 14 seconds.
Lawns 1 and 2 were cut before play started on Day 2 and were playing at 12 seconds first thing.
All slower on day 3; but not timed.
Day 4 was overcast and cooler, which took the edge off the speeds; around 10.5 seconds at 1630.
David Magee has located the Sidmouth nightclub.
The groundsman thinks that the reaction of player with the belt was quite entertaining after he'd played a bad shot.
No-one completed a TP against Tony.
13/14 games on Lawn 2 included TPs; by contrast, lawns 3 and 4 only had 4 and 3 respectively.
Jeff Dawson won 8 of his last 10 games, having started with 4 losses on day 1.
30 tps or better from 56 games.
