15 Sept - Symons beats Baylis 2-1 in the Beginners Tournament winners play-off

Russell Robinson reports: - Indi the dog and I went down to the courts this morning to offer some moral support for our two finalists in the Beginnersí tournament play-off between Gillian Symons and Hugh Bayliss in glorious September sunshine.
I didnít see the first game, which Hugh won 7-5 but I did witness the second game which featured an amazing oblique angled shot into the jaws at hoop 1 by Gillian which set the tone for the game which she powered away to win 7-0.
Gillian's positioning, judgment of length and hoop running were all very impressive for someone who took up the game only this season.
She continued in the same vein in the decider, opening up a 3-1 lead, and although Hugh pegged it back to 4-3, Gillian's all-round game proved too good for a gallant Hugh, who nevertheless played well himself.
Gillian ran out the winner at the 10th hoop 7-4.
Congratualtions Gillain
