The sixteenth running of the Mark Jackson memorial end of season tournament took place this afternoon. Rain curtailed the final round but two and a half rounds were completed which enabled a result . After starting in sun the afternoon gradually worsened but not before some excellent action on courts 1-4 after 16 members took part. The men’s event was well contested with three players battling it out for the trophy. New member Jonathan Tyler just finished ahead of leading junior Bradley Triffitt to secure runners up whilst Harrogate mixed division 5 player of the season Richard Franks was victorious finishing on 15 points.
In the ladies Louise Beasley managed 12 points but retaining the title from last season was Fiona Chantrey who was the top female also in Harrogate division 5 and finished with 14 points
Richard Franks and Fiona Chantrey had a memorable season together and finished on a high winning the Mark Jackson this afternoon. Enjoy your wine guys!
Thanks to Jonathan Tyler, who was making his debut today, and was runner up in the mens event with the consistent Louise Beasley, confirming herself one of the leading ladies at the club, runner up in the ladies tournament. Enjoy the biscuits!
Thanks to regular organisers Helen Robinson and Mike Triffitt.
Ann Jones provided the biscuits and Ellie Triffitt was in charge of the whistle.
