Worthing Autumn Doubles

A cold start to what turned out to be a bright sunny day. 26 teams overnight, but an 8am dropout meant byes, and some rejigging of the afternoon games.

Play started promptly at 10.00, and after the morning leagues only 4 teams were on three wins: Tim and Becky on +28, Martin and Nigel on +23, Michael and Geoff on +22, and Mark and Will on +17. More surprising was seeing GWR’s Phil Bradshaw and Mark Gay, and our own Hassi and Mark, barely scrape into the Silver seeded at 15th and 16th respectively with a solitary win apiece.

The afternoon was Gold and Silver with consolages, and a rejigged Bronze played as a three game snake. The afternoon went pretty much to form, with the outstanding game being the all-Kent Gold Final between Tim and Becky, and Keith Atkinson and Trevor Gordon. This ended with a 13-12 win to Tim and Becky.
