East Dorset mixed 19th May

David Lloyd reports 10 pairs, very good standard. Good to see Jane Manners back playing with a Korean member "Dennis" (actually Sunghun Choi or Choi Sunghun). The final was a 6-2 win for Steve Archer and Merie Sabey over Shane Horsell and Jo Ward, but the highlight was the semi where Steve and Merie beat Neil Abercrombie and Cleo Skilton on a tie break. Winners of the consolation, and pictured here, were Neil Crawford and Heather Halliday.

Prizes were all from the RNLI charity shop and a special prize of yellow RNLI socks to the sock connoisseur Robin McDonagh pictured with Ian and Ed who run the clubhouse cafe and provided food all day and a very nice evening meal. Steve Archer's report will appear in the next magazine.
