GC C level tournament 22 May
report by Richard Keighley
Terry Collis of Wrest Park won the tournament.
A full field of 16 players took advantage of the fine weather and fast courts to take part in this National Series tournament on 22nd May 2019.
Seeds predominated in block play with Linda Gavigan (Chichester and Fishbourne), Bruce Bennet (Edinburgh) and Dr Edwin Bone (Eynsham) proceeding to the knockout stage with three straight wins each. They were joined by Tony Meredith(Wrest Park) who defied his ranking to also record three wins, and the remaining places were taken by Glynis Davies (Northampton), Sheila Beal (Leighton Linslade) and Peter Jones (Wingrave) with two wins each, and a very fortunate Terry Collis (Wrest Park) with one win but a one hoop advantage on countback.
However, this was a game of two halves. Terry promptly dispatched Linda 7-
Terry’s winning streak continued and he beat Edwin 7-
Bruce beat Sheila 7-
1. Terry Collis
