Bryan Harral won the Wrest Park AC Handicap Tournament

[<<] [>>] by John Bevington at Wrest Park
18 May 2019 (AC - Handicap)

The winner, as last year, was Bryan Harral, who won four of his five games, losing only to John Tew, and also beat Peter Aspinall, the only other player with four wins. Richard Keighley was the next best of the higher handicappers with three wins from four. His first game and only loss was against John Bevington, but it dragged on so long (there were no time limits) that by the time it had finished everyone else had started their next game.

There were 16 entries and Wrest Park members made up half the field. Handicaps ranged from -.5 to 18 with seven between 4 and 6. Playing conditions were ideal, but the dry weather prior to the tournament made it difficult to keep the hoops firmly set. A prolonged heavy shower early on Saturday afternoon came close to making the lawns unplayable for a while, but thankfully it did not last.

Thanks to all who helped with the catering, especially Peter Aspinall, who prepped Sunday's lunch at home before coming out to help set up the lawns ready for play.
