A few matches have been played over the past week in the Women's Club Singles Championship. I gather there were a couple of very close games - well played to all!
We will play the semi-final games as soon as possible - we have a couple of ladies playing in the District Singles so those games take priority over club games.
The District Pairs for 2021 were plagued by rain over the past few days, but the St Ives team of Di McBryde & Vicki Bartrop emerged as the 2021 District Senior Pairs champions. In the final, the St Ives pair defeated Brenda Walker and Gill Barton (Neutral Bay).
They then went on to win the playoff against the Northern Beaches (Newport Beach). This means they will be representing Region 15 in the State Championships later in the year.
It’s 3-in-a-row for St Ives, and a second win for both players, although previously in different teams. (Di won last year as Skip, with Shizuko Hashimoto as her Lead; Vicki won in 2019, with Sue Byrne as her Lead.)
