3 Masters teams at 2016 National Finals

Three Avon teams had qualified for the finals, held at Stoke Mandeville Arena last weekend, by winning their age group in the South West League, with all three teams having remained unbeaten. At National level however the competition is tougher.


The over 55 squad had the best performance of the weekend, although they lost their semi-final on Saturday against Lancashire with a 3-9 score with Dave and Ian winnng both of their men’s doubles and Dave and Shirley taking their mixed. Their Sunday 3 / 4 play-off was a nail biter right to the end. With Dave and Ian winning one of their men’s doubles and both ladies pairs, Judy and Debbie and Dot and Shirley each winning a ladies doubles they still did not look likely winners, however three pairs went on to win their mixed doubles, Ian and Judy, Dave and Shirley and Gary and Debbie so a 6-6 result. With the winners being decided on the first mixed Avon over 55’s clinched the third place over Worcestershire. Players were Dave Gribble, Ian Nicholls, Gary Priday, Nigel Birkitt, Judy White, Debbie Burrell, Shirley Green, Dot Barrett.
