Novice Pairs 2017
2017 OPEN TEAMS
Congratulations to the team of Jean Johnson, Margie Way, David Sykes, Ed Betteto and Fabian Hupe, winners of the Open Teams title for 2017. A very close contest, with the junior team of Ellen Davidson, John Luebkemann, George Correia and Linda Abend putting in a very strong performance to tie with the team of Jane Smith, Gertie Barker, Rachael Gosling and Simon Giffen for second place, just two victory points off the lead. Nine teams competed, and every team achieved at least one match victory along the way. Well done all.
