Nobles’ Ladies’ Singles


There was a disappointing entry of 18 for the ladies’ singles played at Nobles on Saturday 23 July for the Jordan Cup, but what the field lacked in quantity it made up for in quality !

Quarter-finals: Paula Firth 21, Lin Ruscoe 20; Chris Price 21, Heather Horsburgh 11; Tricia Bull 21, Joyce Ogden 14; Shelley Kennish 21, Lynda Cadamy 18

Semi-finals: Chris Price 21, Paula Firth 16; Shelley Kennish 21, Tricia Bull 12

The final could almost be described as “a game of two halves”, as Chris raced into a lead of 13-5. Playing a mark along the far edge of the green Shelley then won seven ends in a row to level at 13-13, and the next end to take the lead for the first time at 15-13.The game was evenly matched for the next seven ends, to leave Shelley at 19-17, before she cleared up the last two to win 21-17.

The presentation was made by Joyce Ogden who thanked all those involved in running the event, particularly the ladies for doing the refreshments and Stuart for running the sheet.
