The Christmas Singles Handicap competition for 2016 for Lincoln League players took place on Monday 19th December at Crusaders club yet again.
A vibrant crowd of excitable players were supported by partners and parents for an extremely busy hyperactive evening.
I noticed star performances by Lin Jun Han (Lucy) who beat Daren Thorpe, and Lex Robinson on the way to a Semi final with Alkisti Olympiou.
Mick Johnson battled his way past Ian Sleight, David Brown and Nick Robinson all the way to the final.
We saw a good win for Brett Pardoe over Mick Dudman and then Brian Joyce over Brett.
Jacob Bennett sparkled past Sally Riggall and Alkisti twinkled all the way to a final.
The Main result was a win by 21-19, 21-14 by Alkisti over Mick Johnson.
The Plate event for those who lost their first match saw Sally ease her way past Ian Minogue in a fine victory and Anindya Basu give major problems going past Mick Dudman and William Beckett all the way to the final.
Jack Bradley fresh from his surprise exit in the main event defeated Betty Brown and then Sally to reach the final against Dr Basu. The result was a 21-16, 22-20 win for Jack.
