Eight contestants all enjoyed single banking on the Old Lawns made possible by the facilities at the North Lawns providing excellent courts for any of their members wishing to dare the blazing Mid-day Sunshine during the weekend.

Playing in the rather tricky conditions of faster than usual lawns and rock solid hoop setting was a treat for everyone although, due to this, not many games finished quickly.

The manager, John Haslem, set up two blocks which produced Semi Final Sunday. In the morning Dennis Scarr and Brian Medley were both beaten in tense time turns by Neil Adams and Charles Harding.

The final was a fascinating match between the rapidly improving Neil and the cool experience of Charles. The 'royal box' was full to capacity with members and visitors to watch proceedings.

In presenting the trophy, Brian Lewis the Chairman of S&BCC made reference to the club's commitment to holding this important and long standing event. We were all pleased to hear that and have our fingers crossed that this and many other tournaments will bounce back in 2023 following the pandemic years.
