Giles Pepperell won the Bury GC C-Level
Fortunately, the debilitating temperatures experienced on Tuesday gave way to comfortable playing conditions on tournament day, although the sustained heat meant that the lawns were running fast.
12 players from Llanfairfechan, Westmorland, Ben Rhydding, Chester and Bury came to Whitehead Park for this C Level tournament. Several of the players had their first experience of participating in a tournament, hopefully their first of many.
The players were split into 2 blocks of 6 and resulted in Giles Pepperdell (Llanfairfechan), John Armer (Westmorland), Sarah Clements (Chester) and Ian Saunders (Bury) progressing to the semi- final. Giles won his semi- final 7-3 against John and Sarah won 7-4 against Ian. John took third place over Ian, winning 7-4.
Giles won all his games enroute to the final and Sarah dropped only one. An exciting close match ensued, and Giles emerged victorious over Sarah 7-5.
Club President David Barrett presented Giles with his fine trophy. game
Everyone was most appreciative of the welcome and hospitality provided by the Bury Club. Thanks to all concerned.
