Wenceslas Cup Final

By Robin Kettle

Dramatic win in mixed doubles final

After 4 preliminary and 2 semi-final round-robin groups, the annual Wenceslas Cup was concluded last week in dramatic fashion.

After winning their last match 7-3, Tricia Sidwell and Tom Knowles equalled the record of Stella Focsa and Tom Barton . As they couldn't be separated on points, or games won or their match with each other (drawn), they could only be separated by means of a championship tie-break.

Stella and Tom B seemed to have it sewn up at 7-3 but Tricia and Tom K stormed back to win the next 7 points.

Linda Strain and Robin Kettle finished 3rd, with Emma Kings and Mike Kerslake in 4th.

Tricia and Tom are pictured being presented with their trophies by Malcolm Sidwell, who organised the successful tournament.

Watch out for the St Patrick's Cup which will be starting in January, again running on Thursday nights.
