Adam Swinton Won the Bowdon B-Level Weekend

[<<] [>>] by Ken Cooper at Bowdon
18 Sep 2016 (AC)

This was the first year in which there was not a full entry of competitors, with only 10 players contesting the B-Level Advanced Weekend at Bowdon over a gloriously sunny weekend.

The weather was warm and sunny throughout and the tournament was played, as always, in a cheerful and friendly spirit. The lunches and teas were outstanding and much appreciated by the visitors (and the home players too!). The event was very well managed by Barry McKenzie, who was managing his first tournament. The lawns were a pleasure to play on and thanks go to Alan Mayne and his helpers for all their care, which included removing the dew each morning and leaving before anyone else arrived. Thanks also go to Colin Irwin for hoop setting and refereeing.

The final was between Adam Swinton of Bowdon and Dennis Scarr of Middlesbrough, with Adam winning +12, +7. Meanwhile, Caroline Denny from The Bears won the consolation Egyptian event.
