British Merit Qualifier

Report by Heather Horsburgh

There was an entry of 14 ladies for the British Merit Qualifier played at Finch Hill on Sunday 21st April 2013. The weather stayed fair despite the threat of rain before the start and there were some hotly contested games in each round.The semi-finals were composed of four players from Mooragh Park, with Janet Monk coming through a tough game against Rachel Quirk 21-19, while Viv Grills did not find it a lot easier to see off Kellie Maddrell-Reeve 21-15.

In the final Janet was on top throughout finding a couple of marks along the edge of the green that had Viv flummoxed. In the end Janet won 21-12 and will represent the Island at Burton-on-Trent in July

Thanks go to Finch Hill for the use of their facilities with a special mention to Anne and Maimie for providing the refreshments.
