Jarvis-Mann Win BHPC Open Doubles

20 teams turned out on a bit of a blustery, dry (except for one little shower) day for this year’s club Open Doubles. Of the five BHPC teams present (is this a record?) – Alan I/Rohan, David A/Ian, David M/Jill G, Gareth/Tony, Pat/Terry – only Gareth and Tony qualified for the Main 8 out of the five morning leagues.

The other four club teams qualified for the Plate 8. Having succumbed to David M and Jill in the quarter-final, David A and Ian went into the Plate Consolage which they won after winning two more games. Meanwhile, both Pat/Terry and Alan/Rohan won their quarter-finals. After beating David M and Jill in a very close semi-final, Pat and Terry lost to Alan and Rohan in the final. So club teams were Plate winners and runners-up, an excellent result.

In the Main competition, Gareth and Tony played with consummate skill and concentration to win all three games to win the whole shebang. This is turning out a golden year for them after their previous successes we’ve reported on (plus Gareth coming second, with Alan Constable, in our Open last year). Congratulations!

Thanks to all the club members for their efforts in making a great success of the day: including Ann (raffle), Chris H (admin), Gareth (organising the event and admin), Nick and Tony (MC and admin).
