70th Penzance Open Tournament

Another trip to Penzance for club members this summer to take part in this annual open tournament, the 24th consecutive year that Steve has acted as referee.  A good time was had by all with finals day appearances for Sarah Ball, Dan Sanderson, Anthony Weingarten, Dave Lambe, John Colman, Mike Fahie-Wilson, Gill Sanderson, Marg Rimmer and Jaki Moffat.  Wins for Sarah & Marg in the Ladies 55 & Over Doubles, Sarah in the Mixed Senior Doubles, Dan Sanderson in the Mens Handicap Singles, and Dave & John in the Mens Handicap Doubles.  Runners up for Anthony in the Mens Open Singles and Doubles, Sarah in the Ladies Senior Doubles, Gill in the Ladies 55 & Over Doubles, Dan & Mike in the Mens Handicap Doubles, Dan & Jaki in the Mixed Handicap Doubles, Dave in the Mens Senior Doubles.

A special mention for Dan who played the most matches of all tournament competitors, no less than 20! And Gill played the second highest number of matches, at 14. Steve did a fantastic job once again as tournament referee and plans to make it 25 years in charge in 2020! Expected dates are Sunday 26th July to Saturday 1st August 2020 so save the week if you’re interested in coming along! Lastly well done to Andy Barker for being official photographer on finals day once again, receiving a trophy in recognition of his contribution to the tournament.
