This was a great contest by all involved, with many unexpected twists and turns, including the highest ranking Player, Tony Elliott, coming through to win! Ealing members finished 1st, 3rd, and 5th, with only Jane having a REALLY BAD day, although not as bad as poor Andrew Fall, who sadly lived up to his surname, and had to retire hurt after over-balancing whilst attempting to pick up his camera, gashing his shin against our vertical paving stones.
The afternoon knock-out was really tough, with many hard-fought wins, none more so than Tony’s 110-minute epic semi-final struggle to overcome the unbeaten Michelle. The final was a breeze by comparison against a limping Gavin Taylor, as was Charlie Sale’s 3rd place win over an exhausted Michelle.
A large number of Ealing members had worked incredibly hard over the preceding days to ensure the club looked its best, and with the lawns in excellent condition it was a great showacse for the club.
See you all next year.
