The Staniland mixed singles trophy

The mixed singles trophy was contested in monsoon conditions on Sunday 7th July. Fourteen brave (?) contestants played in heavy drizzle and rain. Those playing in each of four matches were: Keith, Chris, Eve, Neil, Lynne, Janet M, Joyce, Gary, Lois, Peter R, Paul, David, Judith and Sally.

Paul organised a splendid day and his thanks go out from all of us, Paul was ably assisted by scorer/marker Margaret.

Are we downhearted? NO!

Neil and Paul won all of their four group matches and went on to a close-fought (and dry!) final with Paul the eventual winner. Congratulations to Paul in lifting the trophy …. 13 years since the last time his name appeared on the Staniland Trophy.

Well done Paul
