Women’s Doubles at Worthing Sunday 17th March
Amazing day at Worthing for our Women’s Doubles celebrating International Women’s Day. Thanks to all 61 women from across the Southern Counties who took part and entered into the spirit of the day. Well done to winners Sammy & Paula and all eight teams who qualified to play at the National IWD Event in four weeks time. Special thanks to Hilary for running the competition, Graham for adjudicating and all the wonderful volunteers and spectators.
Four of our ladies took part. Team Alison and Trudy won two games out of three in the morning session and qualified for the Gold competition in the consolage in the afternoon but sadly were not successful in the three games they had to play. Team Sue and Val won 1 out of three in the morning, and were successful in winning Silver in the Consolage.
