Morrisons Tournaments at Pt Chevalier
The Pt Chevalier AC Doubles Tournament was played over the weekend 23/24 February. Despite the dire forecasts the weather turned out fine and the weekend was enjoyed by all. 8 pairs were put into 2 sections so that the section winners played off for the final and the seconds and thirds did the same so all played 4 games in total.
The winners were Chris Browne and Ross Sutton of Waihi with Owen Knapman and Janey Carey 2nd then Kit Jackson and Sue Brodziak 3rd and Kim Osbourne and Amanda Willis 4th.We were very grateful to Morrisons Funeral Directors for sponsorship.
The event also produced some interesting playing situations including an in-field cannon with a dead ball and an error is setting the initial time limit for the game (the fault of one of the players) and whether the opposition would be able to claim to be "playing when misled" as a result which turns out to be rather unclear in the laws book.
