ECR Triples 2023

30th July 2023.

An excellent turn out of 13 teams, with 9 clubs represented, attended the 2023 ECR Regional Triples at Birchanger PC on Sunday 30th July.

The morning consisted of three leagues with eight teams qualifying for the main and five for the plate.

The weather started off fine but then rain came and continued all day.

Winning all their matches, Andy & Jean Wilmot (Towers PC) and Chris Parr (Feering Bell), reached the final of the main where they met Vivien Middleton-Sams (Rayne Swan PC), Colin Roper, and Naheb Thodabux (Towers PC). The Wilmots with Chris Parr were the winners of this contest. Both teams have accepted the invitation to represent the region at the Champion of Champions in October in Newcastle Upon Lyme, alongside Telstar PC for the Doubles.

The Plate winners were Ian & Carol Barnes and Dave Pearse (Feering Bell) who beat Richard Evans, Andy Nicholson and Derek Gardiner (Colne Con Club PC). Congratulations to all.

Prizes were presented by Colin Roper and Andy Wilmot. Thanks to Chris Parr for organising the competition and to Birchanger club for hosting this competition for the first time. Fantastic job.
