This season we entered 5 ladies, 5 mens and 3 mixed teams into the National Inter-Club Championships. The teams ranged from over 35 to over 75.
It was a very successful season again, travelling the length and breadth of the country to fulfil our fixtures. The ladies over 65 team reached the quarter finals, with the over 70 team reaching the semi finals.
The mens over 35 and over 75 reached the quarter finals, the over 60 team reached the semi finals, and the over 65 team were losing finalists.
In the mixed event, our junior and super senior teams reached the semi finals, and the senior team were losing finalists.
Our indoor Seniors Tournament, held in January, again attracted a large entry from across the country, with club members Ann Brown and Tony Alexander finishing as runners up in their respective over 60’s events.
The ladies over 70 county team are due to play Surrey in the finals play-off in Dudley, with club members Helen Drummond, Sue Reesby, Jill Shelvey and Beryl Jones, representing the county.
A big thanks to all our team captains for a great effort and hard work throughout the season. Also big thanks to Jill Shelvey for refereeing our successful indoor seniors tournament, which will again be held in January 2019.
