[<<] [>>] by Nick Evans
27th October 2002 (Other News)

Despite lashing rain and gale force winds the Northampton One-Ball weekend was a remarkable success. Saturday, October 26th handicap was won by Charlie Askew (4.5 handicap), a local member and rapid improver. 17 entrants in total.

Sunday, October 27th Advanced was won by Nick Evans dropping only one game to Lionel Tibble. 13 entrants from as far as Newcastle upon Tyne. Highest break of the weekend was won by Paul Swaffield - amazing eleven hoops. Attempts to clear the tree debris and leaves was abandoned before play started. Hoops were lost under accumulating leaves and twigs. However, a remarkably high standard of play was maintained - and not a complaint to be heard.
