Last year’s winners – Alison Merrien & Paul Foster are through to the final which will be played on Tuesday 17th on the BBC at 1:00 pm. They play the new pairing of Stewart Anderson & Cerianne Glen who came through yesterday afternoon v Mervyn King & Lisa Fetherby. That probably wasn’t the most exciting game even though it went to a tie-break, but a win in any round at this level is a great achievement.
Di, Ann H & Dawn felt the same when they scored a win over Pauline, Doreen & Norma in the Over 50’s Triples at Egham yesterday morning. Their prize is a tie against the 3T’s – Teresa, Tina & Tricia, but at least it’s at Cambridge Park. 28th January is the mooted date. We might have to get some of those on the Markers’ Course to do some ‘real’ measuring!
So today, the Ladies take to the indoor arena at Potters, with some hot matches to watch.
As far as World Match Play Singles, I think I’m right in saying all the first named in the above draw, apart from Nicole, have played and/or won the Singles. Let’s hope now that the other players, having got at least one game under their belt on the portable rink, settle in quickly and treat us to some good close matches.
