Winchcombe Closed Tournament - April 2012

Winchcombe Tournament

The Winchcombe Handicapped Championships took place in April this year and a new champion was crowned. The level of competition was as great as the Cheltenham closed with four of the top league players in attendance but little could be done against the long outsider from division 3 Adam Andrews.

Andrews played well all night beating the likes of Mytton and Davidson with his strong forehand and intelligent serving. His opponent in the final was the former finalist Tristan Gretton who like Jimmy White of snooker let another shot at the title slip through his fingers. Gretton won the first game fighting back to take it 22-20 and then lost the second 16-21. The third was all to play for as and Gretton looked to have secured his first title when he had two match points in his grasp, but it was Andrews who pulled the magic out of the bag in the last five points of the game to win 23-21.

The handicapped doubles was a more straight forward affair as four times open singles champion Darrell Wiltshire was partnered with this year's singles runner up Tristan Gretton. They cruised their way to the final and beat Stewart Ratcliffe and Nicky Mytton in the final 21-18, 23-21 

The beer and chips at the new social venue of the Harvest Home in Winchcombe closed out the night.
