Mens Champion of Champions

Club Members Entered: Mick Kerbey

Mick Kerbey played the first round of this competition away at Cuddington against his opponent, Graham Green. This was a game of continual “nip and tuck” and plenty of jack movement. Although Mick played the better drawing game, Graham played the tactical game. He successfully moved the jack to his advantage on several occasions and finally outplayed Mick to victory. The defeated Mick reported a lovely sunny day and a most enjoyable and well fought game.

Men's Unbadged Singles

Club Members Entered: Bill Jessup, Naresh Gurung, Les Stow, Les Smith

Bill Jessup and Les Stow drew their first games at home against competitors from West Wimbledon and Southey respectively. Naresh Gurung drew an away game against a competitor from Putney Town and, by agreement, played his game slightly earlier than the required “play on” date. Unfortunately, all three were unsuccessful this time around but I’m sure they all learned from their experience and will build on this for games to come. Well done to you all in seizing the opportunity.

A different story for the more experienced Les Smith who successfully beat his opponent at Southey. He goes on to play at home against an opponent from Malden Lime Grove. Good luck Les!

Ladies’ Champion of Champions

Club Members Entered: Lorna Hunter

Unfortunately, Lorna is still waiting for an operation to hopefully alleviate back pain. Sadly, she feels unable, at present, to compete successfully in a singles competition. In addition, she recognizes that it would be unsporting of her to play in early rounds of a competition where she may have to concede games in later rounds. She has, therefore, regretfully made the decision to give her opponent a walkover. Hope you get some speedy progress on your health issues Lorna!
