Successes for Archery Players
Ealts Open Singles & Doubles Tournament March 31 –April 14 2018
There were 70 competitors this year including many club players but not as many as usual. The Tournament was mainly played in unseasonably cold & wet weather but miraculously the weather turned dry & sunny for finals day.
There were some great close finals particularly the Main Draw Male Singles & Doubles which were a double success for Tom Wride. In the singles he defeated the previous 5 times winner Richard Partridge 6-2,7-6 & in the doubles teamed up with Tom Knowles to defeat Richard Partridge & Marcus Psaltopoulos-Meadows 4-1,1-4,10-8. Tom Wride had previously won this event 20 years ago before he went to the USA..
Other Archery winners were Holly Reid Female singles, Ellie Mccance Female qualifying singles & Hannah Smith Female qualifying singles consolation. Runners up were Josh Knowles male Main draw consolation. Helen Owen female qualifying singles & Jo Beard Female qualifying singles consolation.
