Nottingham and Surbiton played the delayed 2021 Mary Rose final at Wrest Park on Friday 27th May 2022.

On a beautiful day, the match was played on perfectly prepared lawns running up to 13 plummers.

Morning games (Nottingham names first):

Mike Hedge (1.5) lost to Graham Brightwell (2) -3

Martin Beacon (2) lost to Nick Furse -9

As the morning singles had taken some time, the afternoon games were timed to 3hrs, finishing at 7.

Ian beat Andy +1 on time after a crucial hit in.

Alex beat Mary +12, despite accidentally pegging his own ball out!

Martin lost to Graham -23.

Mike beat Nick on the Golden Hoop, despite nearly playing the wrong ball at the death!

Nottingham clinched it 4:3 in a very tight match.

Many thanks to Wrest Park for hosting.
