Championships – Over55 Pairs results

The second County Championship of the year was held on Saturday November 23rd.  The 31 entrants were initially placed in 7 groups (3×5 and 4×4) but due to last minute dropouts 2 of the groups of 5 were reduced to 4 teams. All games were of 9 ends duration. At the end of the Round Robins the 7 group winners plus the next best 9 went into the Last 16 – the first KO stage. These resulted in wins for…

Rod Dawson/Nigel Clarkson v Peter Arthur/Jean Bridges (9-8)
Keith Hughes/David Brown v Peter Hawkett/Sue Haigh (9-8)
Dave & Anne Herbert v Roger & Diane Ellis (8-6)
Freddie & Gill Alnutt v Chris Prendergast/Jean Bridges (10-9)
