Ashby Handicap AC Singles Weekendby Mark Suter [CA Manager]
Six players contested this event in delightful summer weather at Ashby over the weekend of 13-14 June. This meant that it was an all-play-all competition, and the Egyptian scoring scheme was adopted to increase the likelihood of a discrete winner after 5 rounds. This was fortunate as 3 players finished with 4 wins, having all beaten each other! Heather Hardy emerged as the winner as she had lost her first game, so ended up with a higher index than Roger Watson and Arthur Rowe. The eagle-eyed will notice two players in the picture less that 2 metres apart - they were husband and wife Roger & Debbie Watson who had to play each other in the final round on Saturday.
