Pendle and Craven midweek tournament

[<<] [>>] by John Filsak at Pendle and Craven
2-5 Jul 2013 (AC - Handicap)

Thursday afternoon, a change of manager, and summer arrives at Pendle. Away go the waterproofs, out comes the sun cream. And newcomer Graham Good from Bury continues a run of play which will give him three of the trophies on offer for the week, earning himself a bronze merit award and a handicap reduction. He'll be back.

The class events were run as American blocks. Alan Edwards (Woking), with his consistent, steady play, was unbeaten in the A/B block. In the C class Bob Thompson (Nottingham) and Roger Staples (Middlesbrough) were tied on number of wins, but Bob took it by virtue of having beaten Roger. Graham Good was unbeaten in the D class. Graham also emerged top of the Egyptian competition, with Margaret Anderton (also Bury) a close second. The doubles, a straight knock-out, was won by Roger Staples and Terry Vernazza (Fylde), who beat Ken and Margaret Anderton.
