Jenny Moore Claims Ladies Championship Title

On Saturday 1st July the Ladies Championships were held at Port Erin Green. 

Jenny Moore took the title on a very tricky green, beating Rebecca Teare in the final 21-18.

The day started with 17 entries. In the quarter final stages Clare cooper (marown) just came through 21-20 against her team mate Debbie Leece, Janet Monk (Mooragh Park) won 21-12 to Kim Hargraves (South Ramsey). The finalists booked their places with Rebecca Teare overcoming fellow marown player Charlotte Clark 21-9 and Jenny Moore ended Jayne Smith’s (marown) hopes of a final winning 21-19.

The Semi Finals saw a marown clash of cooper and Teare with rebecca just edging the lead enough to win 21-17. Jenny dominated her game against Janet winning 21-7.

The final was a much slower game and after 16 ends was level on points at 9-9. But after another 5 ends Jenny was leading 14-11 as Rebecca was unable to claim any 2’s at all in this game. By the 29th end at 20-14 Jenny just needed 1 more point, But Rebecca wasn’t about to let her take it easily and dug in deep to win the next 4 ends 20-18. On the next end Jenny claimed a single to end the game at 21-18 and claim her Isle of Man Ladies Championship title.
