A field of 14 players with handicaps ranging from 2 to 6 took to the much improved courts at Hamptworth for their 2 day National series B level tournament. Two blocks of seven were played on the first day, with each player playing six games and a bye. The top four in each group proceeded to the top eight for day two. The weather forecast for day 2 was dire, with heavy rain, thunder and hail forecast from lunchtime, so the manager (Richard Jenkins) re-formatted his original plan so that the top eight contested three rounds of 19 point games and those playing for the Plate competed as one block of six - all play all one 13 point game. Three ladies fought their way to the semi finals, with Sonia Hemsley (Bransgore) only narrowly missing a place in the final by putting her opponent through on hoop 19! The final between Lynn Pearcy[2H](Roehampton and Hamptworth) and Debra Hayns[5H](Ryde)finished 10-6 to Debra while 3rd and 4th places went to Keith Bryant[6H](Dowlish Wake)who beat Sonia Hemsley[5H] 10-8.
