Anzac Day singles and doubles

Congratulations to John Link and Peter Blomquist, singles finalists. It was a battle of the fittest after playing their way through a knock out and also a group round robin doubles before the singles final was played just before 6pm.
John narrowly beat Peter, 3 all when the final siren went, so in extra time he secured the win 4/3.
Thanks to the rest of the players that also played and for your participation in both the singles and doubles. It was great to be able to include Jo Bartholomew, touring member of Prested Hall Club.
James Guest and Peter Blomquist won the group being the only pair with 4 wins.
