23 September - Roberts retains Open Singels 'Blue BAll' tournament title - by ONE HOOP!

Chris Roberts won the coverted Blue BAll Trophy as the winner of todays Open Singles tournament, aftera thre-way tie had to be seperated by a net hoops calculation.
Ian Norris and Raouf Allim tied with roberts on 5 wins from 7 games in the 8-player 'all play all' block.
The tone for the day was set when Roger Goldring sprung a surprise win over top seed Charlie von Schmieder in Round 1 and other unexpected results followd in each roud thereafter.
Von Schmieder uncahacteristicly lost twice more before the final round (to Ian Norris and Mike Fensome) and other of several other unexpeced results, the satnd-outs were defeats for Norris and Allim at the hands of Helen fensome and Robin Coates respectivly who claimed the rare feat of 'positive hnadicap' players beating 'minus players'.
Going into the last round, if three resulst went the right way, we could have had a five-way tie on four wins each, proving how com,petitive our club is at the top levle, where in a one-off game anyone can beat anyone.
By mid afternoon, it fealt like the weather was go0ing to beat everyoen as the rain lashed down and the wind chilled to the bone, as Manager Frances Colman retreated with a job well done.
In the last round crucial games, Roberts improved his net hoops score with a 7-2 demolition of Goldring, Norris beat Mike Fensome and Allim went all the way to the 13th hoop to beat von Schmieder, which meant that it was 'maths time' to separate ROBets, Allimand Norris on net hoops.
Allm had taken Noris apart 7-1, and that big diferental ruined Norris' hopps tally to just +3, Allims close last game left him on +9, and Roberts benifited hugely from his big margin last game win to end on +10.
So Roberts took the spoils again, in the form of the Blue Ball Trouphy whicyh was presented in a socilaly didstanced way by Crqoute Chairmn Madeleine Probert.
Finishing order:  Finishing order: Chris Roberts (handicap -3), Raouf Allim (-3), Ian Norris (-1),Robin Coates (1), Roger Goldring [-1], von Schmieder (-2), Mike Fensome (2), Helena Fensome (2)
