  • Nottingham beat Woking in Inter-Club

    Nottingham A beat Woking 4-2 at home on a gloriously sunny day to reach a semi-final against Colchester in the Inter-Club.   Ian Vincent's  first round match against Mike Town was unfinished when the rest of the field wanted lunch, so it was pegged down and later abandoned when the result no longer affected the overall outcome.   James Death survived his partner, Will Gee, being TPO'd by Jeff Dawson to win their doubles, but in the afternoon Jeff beat him with another TP in their singles.  Will won his singles after going well behind and Debbie Cornelius and Ian won their afternoon games to get the four wins needed.

    James Death (-2) and Will Gee (-1) beat Jeff Dawson (-2) and Malcolm Bigg (-0.5) +14OTP (D)
    Debbie Cornelius (-1) lost to Alan Edwards (-0.5) -22

  • Rob Fulford won East Midlands Championship

    Rob Fulford beat our member James Death +25sxp -18tp +14oqp in the play-off of the East Midlands Championship, after James had beaten David Maugham in the final of the draw, but lost to Rob in the final of the process. James Hopgood won the flexible swiss plate.

    Conditions were dry, hot and sunny throughout, though the lawns were still relatively soft after recent rain. Rob certainly seemed to find them easy, completing a record 7 sextuples over the three day weekend. Several of them resulted from his variation of the "Ladies" leave, but with the opponents at hoops 1 and 4, wired by hoop 4, rather than across hoop 1.

    "Rain" briefly stopped play halfway through the middle day when a large audience watched Sheriff of Nottingham Cllr Ian Malcolm formally switch on the Club's Sport England-funded irrigation system, drawing water pumped from
    sandstone aquifers 30 metres below University Boulevard.
