Get Together - Pairs Round Robin - A Great Time Had By All

A great time was had by all at the Pairs Round Robin on Sunday 20th August 2017. There was 11 pairs who played matches in two groups. The winners of each group played each other in the final. There was also a lot of people who came along to support the players. There was between 30 - 40 people attended. The weather stayed fine. The barbeque was a great success, we very much enjoyed Frank Hazelwood's chicken kebabs and the lemon drizzle cakes and blueberry muffins were delicious. Special thanks to Jenny Burgess, Jane Stanfield and Eileen Wood for organising the food.

The winners of the round robin were Pat Crichlow and Lyndon Ogden. The runners up were John Blurton and Tom Hughes. There is a few more pictures of the day. Special thanks to John Stevenson, Jenny and Jane with the draw and organising the games.
