Result of the Veterans Tournament - 2018/19

This year we had 8 pairs who played in a single group with every pair playing each of the other pairs in one game to 21 points with no setting. As always pairs were awarded a handicap based on age, with one point for every 3 years the combined age exceeded 80 with handicaps scaled back as required.

Following the trend of the last 2 years every pair won at least one game. Matthew Hillman and Debbie Lelliot were consistent throughout and deserved to win having won every one of their matches. The runners-up spot was not decided until the very last match with the honours going to the scratch pairing of Will Marks and Vicki Edwards

Thanks once again to all the entrants and to Liz and Ruth for hosting the event and organising the courts.
