2019 Saltburn Open Pairs

Over the weekend of 27th and 28th April 2019 Saltburn defied the local damp weather forecast whilst the annual open pairs competition was held at the bowls club. Once again the quality level of the players was very high, this time the numbers of entrants were slightly down on previous years but the entertainment value was not diminished in the slightest

Saturday saw the early rounds that reduced the numbers in this knockout tournament to the quarter finals level. On the Sunday, an 11:00am start saw the continuation of the games, with the final starting at 2:00pm

Sunday morning was bright but cold, by the time 2:00pm came around we had glorious sunshine and the spectators came out of the clubhouse to cheer on those in the final.

The final itself could not have been closer, Terry Richardson and Eric Whorlton needed an extra end to beat John Selley and Bill Hutchinson (the current holders) 8 points to 7 after the game ended 7 all in the allotted time. A wonderful game played in an exciting atmosphere gave us another enthralling competition.

Many thanks to all who entered, also to the members and organisers at Satburn for providing food, tea and coffee to keep the contestants in tip top form throughout, a very memorable weekend indeed.
