 There was a very good entry. It was an enjoyable  tournament  to organise for Dave Green and Peter Cruwys. 
The boys and girlwere very well behaved, competitive and displayed good sportsmanship.  The umpiring help was much appreciated and well done. Thanks are due to the Cheltenham Club for the use of their excellent equipment.
