CORONAVIRUS - the league is temporarily suspended

Result of the Divisional Tournaments - 2005/06

Another well attended tournament saw the 5 Division One pairs play each other in a single group, playing a single game to 21 points with no setting. As last season, Barry Harriss with Jo Boucher (Yeovil Graduates) and Simon Watson with Kelly Fairey (Westland) beat everyone else, and the decisive match between them was effectively the final, with Barry and Jo victorious by a close score 21-17.

The Division Two tournament also had 5 pairs and was played to an identical format to the Division One tournament, with two pairs from Wessex Wanderers proving too strong for the other pairs. Stephen Rowell and Sarah House led comfortably against Mike Read and Jo Searle in the early stages of the decisive match, but were gradually overhauled towards the end, and although Mike and Jo reached 20 first, Stephen & Sarah held their nerve to win a very close match 21-20.

In complete contrast to last year, there were 16 pairs entered into the Division Three competition, and they were divided into 4 groups playing games to 15 points. The group winners then progressed to the main finals, the runners-up to the minor finals, and so on. Each of the finals consisted of semi-finals, a runners-up play-off and a final, all of which resulted in a finishing position for every pair.
The groups were won by Mike Horsey with Jo Godley (Wessex Wanderers), Lester Cawley with Sandy Sheldon (Charmouth), Paul Boggust with Angela Head (Dorchester Greys) and Steve Meen with Sonia Knott (Bishops Caundle). In the main finals, Mike and Jo dispatched Paul and Angela, but had no answer to Lester and Sandy, who had beaten Steve and Sonia in the other semi-final.
