20 August 2011 (AC - Mixed)

Conditions were dry all week, with lawns increasing in pace. This led to
some long games, and few peeling victories. Sanaa Hallam gained his Gold
award for his first tournament triple, with one triple apiece from Ian
Vincent and John Davis. Ian Burridge, playing only in the Doubles with his
9 year old son Euan did a qpo in his first match, after taking a bisque to
gain the innings.
