Dave Ball Memorial Triples Trophy Competition 2017

This was held on Sunday 10th September 2017 with 24 members competing for the title in a Round Robin format so everyone had 2 games. The Round Robin results are shown above.  The playes were split into 3 groups of ability and one player from each group chosen at random to make teams of 3. The two teams with the highest points difference were Team Worrall (Bob, Helen and Fraser) and Team Bate (Mike, Carole and Gill) who contested the Final. The final was keenly contested and Team Bate were in the lead for the first 10 ends but then Team Worrall found inspiration from somewhere and drew level at the 11th end and then proved unstoppable to run out clear winners 16-10 after the designated 15 ends was completed. It was evident that the day was a great success and thanks must go to organiser Tony Myatt for it’s smooth running.  
After the initial Round Robin section everyone went inside the clubhouse to partake of a sumptuous buffet lunch provided by the ladies section who must be highly praised for organising the buffet, drinks and a raffle.  In attendance were 9 members of Dave Ball’s Family, including his partner Joy who presented the trophy after the final later in the afternoon.  After the buffet entertainment was provided by Club Secretary Tony Myatt who sang songs including Danny Boy and My Way. The event raised £128.50  towards club funds plus £56 towards Cancer Research from the proceeds of the raffle.

CONGRATULATIONS TO Triples Champions 2017 - Bob Worrall, Helen Page and Fraser Page!!
