Noble’s Mixed Ladies’ Singles

The emphasis was on quality rather than quantity at Noble’s Mixed on Saturday 26 July as a disappointing field of 19 gathered to compete for the Jordan Cup. A warm, but cloudy, afternoon stayed dry until the end of the event, and with a true running green there were some excellent games.

Quarter-finals : Lilian Slinger 21, Mary Kinrade 11; Mary Alderson 21, Amanda Lawler 9; Janet Monk 21, Jo Smith 8; Paula Firth 21, Marilyn Ellison 17.

Semi-finals : Mary Alderson 21, Lilian Slinger 18; Janet Monk 21, Paula Firth 11

In the final Mary started brightly winning the first end, but Janet won the next end and having got hold off the jack she refused to relinquish it running out the winner 21-7.

Lin Ruscoe then introduced club chairman, Bob Briercliffe, to make the presentation.

Bob thanked the ladies for providing the refreshments and Vinty for doing the sheet, together with all those who had worked towards the smooth running of the afternoon.
