INTERCLUB COMPETITIONS - A QUICK RUN DOWN OF HOW OUR CLUB'S REPRESENTATIVES STAND
This has reached the third round stage - the last sixteen. We are guaranteed a quarter-final place, as Peter King will meet Peter Hare in that one. Peter Hare won his spot after a marathon 28 ends win over club-mate Gerald Plant in the second round.
As for the remainder, there will be a lot of trips to Floresta! Most of our players have to go there for their next games.
At the quarter final stage. Jean and Peter King, plus Peter and Miriam Hare will be on their way to Floresta.
This is at the second round stage. Two trips also needed to Floresta. Peter and Miriam Hare, with Pauline Denyer, also Jan Wilson, Lynn King and Gui Gomes are heading that way to keep the flag flying we hope. However, Keith Johnson, Alison Wooding and Julie Sanderson have a home tie.
Lynn King and Gui Gomes also have to go to Floresta!
Jean King and Julie Sanderson will set the ball rolling in the second round as they had a bye in the first. They at least will be at home.
Our players have been knocked out of the Mixed Fours, Men's Pairs and Ladies' singles.
