Heff makes it 5 in a row

Stewart Hefferman maintained his Lance Armstrong-like grip on the Club Championship by winning his 5th consecutive title on 25th March 2007.

He Beat Mike Burnett 3 - 1 in the final.

On the same evening, Kevin Popely regained the Vets' title that he previously won in 2005 by beating Nick Hallchurch 3 - 0.

Andy Youngs took the League 7 plus title by beating Carl Francis 3 - 0.

Congratulations and well done to all who played.


Rakesh makes it at the 3rd attempt

Rakesh Gulati won the Rob Milliner Summer Handicap Trophy on Sunday by beating Vince Paul 100 - 79 in the final. Starting from an opening handicap of 75 - 60, Rakesh matched Vince more or less point for point. Tough matches against Kevin Popely and Robert Rickman in the quarter and semi-finals may have cost Vince the final as he never really got into his stride. Rakesh, a finalist on two previous occasions, now adds the Summer Handicap Trophy to the Winter Trophy he won in 2000.

The trophy was presented by Rob Milliner, the former committee member who instigated the handicap tournament formula back in 1985. Rob was returning to the club for the first time since leaving in 1992 having made contact earlier in the year. The trophy bears his name and the tournament was renamed the Rob Milliner Summer Handicap a few years ago.

In the plate competition, Clifford Fox took the honours beating Deidre Pope 100 - 92 from a starting score of 70 points apiece.


Karl wings it in WH final

Karl Wingfield won the Ken Hewison Cup for the 2007 Winter Handicap Tournament on Sunday 4th February beating Kevin Popely in an explosively decisive final.

In a match that neither looked nor sounded like any that I have ever played in, Karl seized the initiative from the outset. Starting on a surprising initial handicap score of 80 to KP's 75, Karl ruthlessly drove Kevin around the court to end the match on a score of 100-88.

Presumably, some insider knowledge was brought to bear on the selection of the handicap and 20-20 hindsight leads me to suspect that it was of a similar quality to that which lead us into war in Iraq but whatever the case, it would have had to have been seriously wrong in the other direction for the outcome of this match to have been any different.

In the final of the plate competition, Don Williams overcame tremendous industry from Joe Lyon to take the honours 100-98 after starting level on 70 points each.

This was an intriguing match where the competitors were rarely more than 2 points apart and with both parties sharing the lead at various stages. Don held the upper hand going in to the business end of the match but having come back from 88-99 earlier in the day he may not have felt unduly concerned if Joe had held the lead in the late 90's.

Well done all round and this time we all got home to watch the telly.
