After five weeks of competition we are eagerly looking forward to finals day this Sunday. We have been fairly lucky with the weather although still await the outcome of games in the Men’s singles and Mixed doubles . Josh Bayliss is meeting Henry Brown Saturday morning at 9-45am with the winner then advancing to a semi-final with Tom Warburton at 4pm. The winner of that will play Jamie Perkins in the final scheduled for 2pm Sunday on court one. Also at 2pm the ladies final between Katie Barrett and Anne Lillywhite will take place on court two.
Barrett will have an early start as she partners Richard Franks against Louise Beasley and Mike Triffitt in the Mixed doubles semi final 10am Sunday morning. The winner progresses to play Greg Vince and Anne Lillywhite later that afternoon. The Men’s doubles is scheduled for 4pm and will feature Greg Vince and Kevin Duckenfield v Richard Franks and Walter Skubiak. The ladies doubles will involve Sue Perkins and Janine Smith v Louise Beasley and Mary Fidler.
Fingers crossed the weather gods are smiling and we have a dry day although sure the wine will be flowing off court!. Hope to see a good crowd to support the players who have battled hard to reach this stage.
