A fantastic number of 33 players came along on Tuesday! The magic was certainly working for the two winning teams of the Club Fours semi-finals.
Chris Cox (sub), Laurie Keane, Eileen Bradley and Carol Reed combined beautifully to take their match, 20 – 17, over Di Howell, Valmai Westcott, Lea Orr and Robyn Morgan.
Likewise, Marja Iffland, Maria Willcockson, Gwenda Carty and Cherie Frame took the lead early and won 20 – 15 against the combination of Brenda Davies, Betsy Johnstone, Liz Byrne and Rhona Went.
In social games, the pairs enjoyed a close tussle, with Lynn Ryan and Helen Heraghty winning by just one point against Vi West and Chris Curteis.
In a triples game, Anne Wright and Isobel Svensden shared the lead spot, and with Jan McPhee and Elaine Miller, they were too good for Kim Evans, Merilyn Rodgers and Maureen Baillie.
Another very close result when Beth Thomas, Fran Dixon and Heather Harvey went down by 2 points against Sue Maddison, Kay Craft and Lorraine Baker.
Happy draw winners today: Sue, Kay and Lorraine, with Helen, Vi and Di cashing in, in the 100’s club.
Next week, Tuesday, 12th October will see the Final of the Club Championship Fours: Team Reed vs Team Frame. Good luck to all eight players. Play begins at 9:30am, with a press photo taken at 9:15!
We’ve flipped the calendar over to a new month filled with birthdays.
Happy days and celebrations to Rhona, Flo, Cherie, Wendy, Chris and Brenda!
