Finals Night Preview

The Annual Championships have set up an intriguing Finals Night at Coaver (downstairs function room) from 7pm on Thursday 12 April, with some classic battles between youth and experience in prospect.

This year a particularly strong Ladies' entry has brought some new faces to the fore, whilst the Men's competitions feature (naturally) some of our most watchable as well as skilful players, including no less than five former Men's Singles Champions.

We have a family duel (Ben v Joe Yarde-Buller) in the Sanford, whilst (again in a family spirit) the Burridges take on the formidable pairing of Mike and Dennis in the Men's Doubles. Meanwhile the Mixed Doubles is also looking very interesting with Mike & Lauren v Nick & Naomi.

Provisional programme (but players please check with Mike Kavanagh if not attending from the start):
