Towers on French Tour
A team from Towers represented the club in an international tournament at Dives sur Mer near Cabourg recently.
With teams from around France, Belgium, Poland & Germany the Towers players held their own both on and off the pitch.
The organisation was excellent and the French hosts very welcoming, we hope to send more teams to the competition next year.
John Cartright Open Doubles Competition
The annual John Cartright open doubles competition was held at Towers on Sunday 14th October, 12 teams entered and a main competition and plate were played with a break for an excellent curry at lunch time.
The main competition was played between Francois Bourquin & Nigel Pierre Migel Hills and Dean Little & Keith Flack in rather damp conditions, with Francois and Nigel emerging victorious.
In the plate were Sylvie Shepherd and Mike Cotter against Viv Middleton-Sams and Colin Sams with Sylvie and Mike winning out in the end.
Excellent competition organisation came from Peter with Christian on bar duty and Julia & Sheila keeping everybody well fed.
Towers at Hayling Island
A heroic Towers team battled through the competition at the Nationals held at Hayling Island on the Weekend of the 15/16th Sept.
Representing the Eastern region the Towers came away with 8 wins out of 12 which was very respectable considering the competition.
Well done to Christian, Jeff, Mark and Richard.
Ongar Festival Tournament
Towers entered half a dozen teams in the Ongar Festival competition on the 6th May, brilliant weather made a great day’s petanque with Christian & Ian reaching the semi final in the main competition and Jackie & Sheila doing the same in the Plate.
A good night was had by all at the Indian Nights curry house in Chelmsford, 19 members enjoyed a decent meal together with a Michael Jackson tribute.
