Alan Edwards won the Woking B-level Tournament

Alan Edwards of Woking and David Williams of East Dorset both finished with
five out of six wins in this event. However, Alan had beaten David when they met, so he won the Lewis Cup for the second year in succession.

Sixteen players with handicaps ranging from 1 to 7 took part in this event which was run for the first time in 2009. The weather was perfect and the hoops were moderate, but most players found it difficult to find their form so early in the season and there were many unforced errors and several long games!

The final round was a nail biting affair for the manager as four players, the above two together with Ian Parkinson and Lawrence Whittaker, went into the last round on four wins out of five games. However, Alan finally prevailed over Lawrence, and David came back from the dead to defeat Ian, so the outcome was clear cut.

Congratulations also to Alan and Gina Lewis for their handicap reductions, Alan from 1.5 to 1 and Gina from 5 to 4.5.
