Zurich International Mixed Doubles

Grandmother and Grandson, Lillian Slinger & Robert Monk, were victorious last Saturday in the Zurich International Mixed Doubles at Finch Hill Bowling club as they defeated the inform Trevor Quayle & Lyn Bolton 21-19 in a closely contested final.

As the score-line suggests it was a close encounter from the off in the final with our eventual victors just having enough to see them over the line. In the Semi-finals Slinger & Monk dispatched Philippa Fletcher & Alec Taylor 21-9 after a supreme display whilst Bolton & Quayle saw off Peter Karran & Jo Smith 21-15 at the same stage.

Fallers at the quarter final stage were Lynda & Derek Cadamy, Lynda Richman & John Matheson, Kath Kinley & Ron Williams and Paula Firth & Jordan Cain. Thanks must go to Finch Hill for a well run competition and to Zurich International for their appreciated support of the event.
