Result of the Veterans Tournament - 2004/05

Playing in a single group, every pair played every other pair in a single game to 21 points with no setting. Starting scores in each game were determined according to the combined age of the pair, the greater the total age, the more points were awarded.

Before the tournament began, it was decided (because only one group was required) that if a single pair were to win all of their games, they would be declared the tournament winners. If no pair won all of their games, then the 2 pairs who won most games would contest a final.

It looked as though Cyndy & Andrew were on their way to winning outright, but in their last game, against Janet & Jon, they fell 0-15 behind before rallying to 18-15 and finally losing 20-21!

Thus a final was required, between Cyndy & Andrew and Lynn & Suresh, which Cyndy & Andy duly won 21-12.
