Heather Hardy won Ashby AC Handicap Weekend

22nd June 2021 (AC - Handicap)

A good turnout of 12 players hailing from a wide swathe of the UK gathered to play this weekend with the threat of a washout hanging over us. Fortunately the rain came on Friday and overnight on Saturday and nobody got wet. The lawn conditions were easier than earlier in the week when the ground had been hard and dry, and in the end only about a third of the games went to time. Everyone won at least one game, although one player was unfortunate enough to lose 3 games -1T.

An Egyptian scoring system was used to help determine a winner amongst those with an equal number of wins - but this year that was not needed as Heather Hardy won all her games although two were very close affairs, with her +2 win against Mick Haytack deciding the overall outcome of the competition. Mick finished as runner-up with only this -2 loss to Heather.
