13th June - Mason & Chambers surprise winners of Cave & Wolfe
It was a real day of upsets, but a memorable one for Bruce Mason and Ralph Chambers, who won the 2013 cave & Wolfe Salvers Tournament today.
The 5+ Tournament began with two clear favorites in the pairings of Mary Gaynor & Don Rutherford and the Earnshaws, Dilys & Alex.
But both these fancied pairs were soon under pressure and on the recieving end of early results and both failed to make 'the cut' into the main knock-out stage.
The other big surprise was the form of tournament debutant John Turner, who along with experienced partner Paddy Bunch made it through to the final, where Bruce and Ralph had just too much for them and won 7-5.

21st June - PCC 'A' notch up another victory

A different looking PCC 'A' were too ggod for Baskinstoke and notched up an emphatic 5.5 to 1.5 victory today.
Shorn of Charlie von Schmeider, Chris Roberts, and helen and Mike Fensome for a variety of reasons, our side stepped up to the plate and secured this useful win.
Raymond Wood lead the side and with no.2 Ian Norris the morimng doubles rubber was soon in the bag. Pam Mead and Mary Gaynor completed won their singles too to give PCC 'A' a healthy 3-0 lead at lunch time.
Wood and Norris then secured the result with singles wins in the afternoon but Mead and Gaynor both faultered, the lattter going down 1-2 and former halving her singles 1-1 (it was decided not to play out the third game as the match result was decided).
So that is two winds from two outings for PCC 'A' but they still have the big guns of Winchester aand Ryde to come.
