Douglas Ladies’ Town Cup

There was an entry of 19 for the ladies’ singles sponsored by Paddy Power which was played at Douglas, alongside the men’s event, on Saturday 23 August. The warm weather and fast green led to some interesting games played in good spirit.

Quarter-finals : Pat Withers 21, Maureen Payne 16; Jo Smith 21, Jenny Moore 19; Rita Callan 21, Wendy Cowin 20; Paula Garrett 21, Lil Smith 10.

Semi-finals : Jo Smith 21, Pat Withers 18; Paula Garrett 21, Rita Callan 16

Paula got off to a strong start in the final winning seven of the first eight ends to lead 15-8. Jo then won the next five ends to level the score at 15-15, but could only manage to win one more end as Paula ran out the winner 21-16.

Roy Williams remarked how kind the weather had been for the competitions for the two Douglas Town Cups before introducing Andy Foster, from Paddy Power, to make the presentations.
