September 24 – Annual Fishbourne Tournament

Following the torrential rain of Sunday, 17 September, the re-run of the tournament on Sunday 24 was played in dry weather but with a strongish southerly wind!

Fourteen club members battled each other and the sudden gusts over five rounds, three before and two after lunch.

After an incredibly tight finish, the match was decided on games won and hoops achieved. The results were as follows:

First - Joyce Parkin with 3 games and 13 hoops.                                                            Second - Anne Gains with two games and 13 hoops.                                   Third - Neil Smith with two games and 12 hoops.                                          Fourth - Keith Burt with 1 game and 13 hoops.                                                 Fifth - Jane Gribbon with 1 game and 11 hoops
