Two Wins for SCCC Members in Three Competitions
Wednesday and Thursday saw two busy days on the lawns at Southwick with all the Annual Tournament events on both days and the GC roll-up on Thursday adding another 40 or so players on the lawns.
The weather was lovely and players agreed the lawns were in excellent condition "a joy to play on!"
GC A level
Two blocks played for the Jellicorse Cup. A bye in one block meant some waiting for the other block but a mini-contest of 9pt games occupied the time, the winner gaining a bottle of wine.
In the end a single game final only was played between the block winners Charlie von Schmieder and Morgan Case. The smart money was on Charlie to win but aggressive play from Morgann carried the day. Congratulations to him for winning the competition.

GC B level
Eight players contested the GC competition at B level. Two players, Michelle Leonard and Graham Tucker won 5 out of 7 games but Michelle just had the edge in net hoops scored (11-9) so she was declared the winner.

AC A level
A small but high-quality field competed for the Abbey Challenge Cup this year. The competition was organised as a single block with players having the option to play best of three matches if they liked. Spaces in the day were also filled by a one-ball competition; Paul Castell won the Manager's bottle of wine.
The cup winner was Joel Taylor who won all his of his matches. Congratulations to him.

AC B level
Another small entry but a well-fought competition. Phil Dunk was on good form and it quickly became clear he was the man to beat. No-one did and only Chris Rolph came close, in what was an enjoyable final match.
