Onchan Ladies’ Doubles

There was an entry of 18 pairs for the Onchan ladies’ doubles for the Commissioner’s Cup played on Noble’s 3 on Wednesday 23 July. On a very warm afternoon a fast green led to some interesting games played in a friendly spirit.

Semi-finals: Janet Monk and Lilian Slinger 21, Jo Smith and Libby Andrade 9; Chris Price and Rita Callan 21, Lyn and Casey Bolton 15.

The final was evenly contested at the beginning with Lilian and Janet leading 11-10 after eight ends. A four for Chris and Rita on the next end followed by a three two ends later swung the match in their favour, and they went on to claim the match 21-14.

Jo Smith thanked all those who had entered the competition, together with all who had helped with the refreshments, running the sheet and in any way contributing to the success of the afternoon.

She then introduced Derek Crellin, Chairman of the Onchan Commissioners, to make the presentations.
