The 2024 Camerton and Peasedown tournament was played on the day the weather began to turn. We had heavy rain overnight leaving some parts of the grounds with rather heavy going, but ended the day with brilliant sunshine.

The tournament was played in four all play all blocks of four. In blocks A and B the top two seeds Steve Durston and Steve Pearson won all their matches but the other two qualifiers were the two players with the lowest D grades in the tournament, Nigel Wulcko and Tony Mayer. Well done to them. The top two seeds Martin Strange and Graham McCausland progressed from group C whilst fourth seed Keith Bryant could only come second in group D to Peter Tremble.

Many of the games in the blocks were very close with 14 of the 24 matches ending either 7-6 or 7-5.

In the afternoon knockout three group winners continued their winning form in the quarter finals with only Tony beating Peter. In the semis, Tony continued his good form defeating Martin and Steve Pearson won the battle of the Steves. Again there were some hard fought close matches.

The final, however was far from close as Tony's excellent winning streak came to an abrupt 7-0 end as he commented that Steve Pearson was running hoops from everywhere.

In the plate event home player Des Back came good to win the final over Bath's Bob Hart in a much more entertaining match as Des fought back to overcome Bob's early lead and win 7-6 much to the delight of the home crowd.
