9th July 2023.
An excellent turnout of 15 pairs with 10 clubs represented assembled at Rayne Swan on Sunday 9th July, to contest the 2023 ECR Regional Doubles.
The morning consisted of four leagues with the top two in each qualifying for the main with the remaining teams playing in the plate.
Telstar PC were competing at their first regional tournament and both their pairs qualified for the main.
After some keenly contested knockout matches, Matt Beattie and Tom Sparkes of Telstar PC, reached the final where they met Bernie Wade and Chris Parr of Feering Bell PC.
The Feering Bell pair took a 4-0 lead but were pegged back straight away. The Telstar duo had the edge thereafter and eventually prevailed 13-10. Many congratulations to Matt and Tom for winning the regional doubles at the first time of asking.
The plate was won by Steve Collins (Totham Swan) and Dave Pearse (Feering Bell) who beat Richard Evans and Scott Burlton of Earls Colne Con Club. Well done to them. Prizes were then presented by Colin Roper. Thanks to Bob Parker for umpiring and helping Chris Parr with running the event.
