Sylvia Cashen Ladies’ Charity Doubles

The weather cleared during the afternoon for the Sylvia Cashen Charity ladies’ doubles played at Port St Mary with the entry of 23 pairs staying dry despite a threat of rain at the semi-final stage. The money raised during the afternoon, just over £300, will be donated to the new Dedicated Breast Care Centre.

At the semi-final stage we had two pairs from Mooragh Park and two from Port St Mary. Ann Maddrell and her daughter Katy faced Jean Radcliffe and Chris Price while Lilian Slinger and her daughter Janet played Margaret Tasker and Tricia Bull.

Semi-finals: Margaret and Tricia 21, Janet and Lilian 19; Ann and Katy 21, Jean and Chris 12

This set up an all Port St Mary final, where the early stages were evenly matched the score at one point being 10-10. Tricia and Margaret only won one more end as good leads from Katy followed by Ann’s destructive work at the back gave the game to the mother and daughter combination 21-12.

The presentation was made by president Ann Maddrell, who thanked everyone for entering and for their generosity. She also thanked Andy for his work on the sheet, the ladies for their work in the kitchen, Ray for the green and Doug for his work on the surroundings.
