Fisher reels in Handicap title

<9>The final of the 2011 Rob Milliner Summer Handicap Tournament was played out between Kerrie Drewe and Rory Fisher. Kerrie is a recent arrival at the club and comes with some pedigree as the crowd were treated to an entertaining match. The handicap started on 55 points to Rory and 80 to Kerrie and Rory had to bring all his experience to bear to keep Kerrie at full stretch with a series of delayed shots, looping angles and extravagant disguises. Rory finally took the match 100 - 97 but the result was never certain throughout the match.

The absolute gold standard in these handicap matches is a 100 - 99 scoreline but in reality, any match that sees the victor win by 5 points or less can be considered to have been handicapped correctly. That is what the crowd got tonight in two contrasting and enjoyable finals but with some spectators leaving after the Plate final, it is clear what they saw as the main event of the evening.


Hanover Humbles Jacobs in Handicap

Stephen Hanover took the 2011 Ken Hewison Winter Handicap Tournament on Sunday 13 March by beating Michael Jacobs 100 - 94 in the final. The pair started with an opening handicap of 80 - 60 and with Michael taking the first 5 points, it looked at first as if the handicap was not going to be enough. Stephen took the next three points to redress the balance.

The pair then traded points for a while with Stephen edging closer to the magic 100 points all the time. Michael managed a couple of late flurries of points whilst Stephen was in the 90's and even strung together a sequence of 9 consecutive points with Stephen on 98 but it was just too late.

Chairman wins hot Plate encounter

The final of the 2011 Summer Handicap Plate competition saw Andy Youngs matched against David Sledge. This was an amiable battle between two regular league opponents from League 3 of the September Leagues. The starting handicap was 70 to Andy and 75 to David who promptly gifted the first 7 points to his opponent before finally getting off the mark with a fluke.

The unseasonally hot weather favoured David's game more than Andy's and he brought his usual industry to the match to keep the rallies going and his nose in front on the scoreboard (even recovering from a fall in one rally).

A burst ball following the second break threatened to affect the game briefly but after a period of ebb and flow, David gratefully reached the target with Andy on 96.
