Players were arranged into 4 groups according to their ability, everyone played 9 matches, against a player from their group, each partnering a player from another group. The partnerships changed for every game. Individuals kept their own scores, and the winners of each group progressed to the semi final stage and then the final. All had a really friendly, if exhausting night, and chocolate trophies were the highly prized rewards! Congratulations this year to Nathan and Will, and the runners up Paul and Rachel.

Two Wirral junior teams played in the annual U15 Dave O'Leary and U19 Thornley Inter-League competitions at Christleton SC on Sunday. U19's were unlucky to have a losing draw against Chester but got a winning draw against Warrington. They lost 3-5 to Crewe though so finished in 3rd place. U15's were all young players and had varied match experience. They had some close individual games but lost all of their matches, so they finished in 4th place. Chester league won both competitions. Many thanks go to Tim as Team Manager having devoted a lot of time getting the teams together. He praised and motivated the young players throughout the afternoon.
