Club Chair Simon Tuke was a late entry for the impromptu Advanced Handicap tournament arranged by Hurlingham for August 8-9.
The small but perfectly formed entry of six was designed to be coronavirus-compliant, with all playing all in a block.
Simon beat fellow Ealing member Tony Elliott in intense heat in the final game on Sunday afternoon, to sneak a win by virtue of having defeated the other 4/5 competitor, Martin Read.
As well as being Simon’s first ever Hurlingham glassware, it was also his first tournament win for more than 28 years.
Many thanks to Hurlingham for their excellent idea of holding this series of mini tournaments to replace the sadly cancelled Hurlingham Week.
