Many Thanks to Ross Mealor, Julia Kearsey & Janet Biles for organising the competitions and the finals night.
The tournament was organised by Andy Notley and held on Thursday 29th December 2022. 16 competitors paired off by seeding, i.e. 1st & 16th, 2nd & 15th, etc. This was previously known as the "Stiffs" tournament, but has now been renamed in honour of Roger who passed away earlier this year and who was instrumental in introducing Racketball to the club. The pairs were split into two groups of 4 with the winners of each group contesting the final and the bottom pairs contesting the Wooden Spoon match. Matches were played as a single game to 21 with a sudden death point at 20-20.
Charles Black & Paul Breakwell played Andy Gilks & Simon Watts in the final with Charles and Paul winning comfortably 21-10. Charles speed and court coverage proved a bit too much for all their opponements during the evening. In the "losers" final Giles Watts & Colin Turner managed to hold off late replacement Steve (I only came down for a beer!) Jefferies & John Pengelly and win the match with a few points to spare. So Steve & John won the wooden spoons.
Thanks again to Andy for organising, Janet Biles for sorting out the trophies and to Andy Gilks for making the trophies.
