Cheltenham CC - Easter Handicap 2 and 3 April 2021

Despite the biting wind and low temperatures a field of 18 turned up for the first tournament of the season. The first day was block play with everyone spaced across all 8 front lawns and each block sharing 2 lawns all day.

The semi finals - R Wilkinson vs N Evans and W Wu vs R Smith

Final saw Robert beating Robin by a very narrow margin - just 2 in it.

Nick Evans won the 3rd/4th playoff and earned an auto handicap reduction from 1.5 to 1 - well done Nick.

An extra mention for Sam Cuthbert who placed a well deserved 5th overall winning 4 of 5 games in his first ever official tournament - at 15 years old Sam is certainly one to watch for the future!! you have been warned.
