Godfrey & Thrower win National Pairs

Phil Godfrey and James Thrower (both Yorkshire) - pictured left - have won the National Pairs competition.

After coming through the club heats, and regional final, fifty pairs played in the national final in West Bromwich on 18th and 19th April. Phil and James ended the seven session final on 61.51%, over two per cent clear of the field. Krzysztof Ginda & Mark Hooper (both Dorset) were second, with Waseem Naqvi & Tony Waterlow (both Middlesex) third.

The National Pairs is an event in the Championship Series, counting towards the Player of the Year Championship. The victory takes Phil and James into a tie for tenth place. The competition is led by David Gold.

Please note that in 2016 there will not be a 'club heat' stage, and all participants will be able to take part in the regional qualifying round. Information on the 2016 competition will be available later this year.
