Keeping and Benjamin win at Eastbourne

The Championship Pairs A Final at the Summer Seniors Congress in Eastbourne was comfortably won by Michael Keeping and David Benjamin. Lying third at the half-way point they had a very good second session to pull 4% clear of Derek and Celia Oram in second place, with Matthew and Heather Tan in third.

The B Final was even more one-sided. John Jones and Adrian Fontes won both sessions with big scores, and finished up more than 10% clear of the rest of the field. Monica Lucy and Alan Cooke won the Swiss Pairs.

The weekend came to a close with the Swiss Teams on Sunday, which was won by the team of Bernard Teltscher, Victor Silverstone, Willie Coyle and Kitty Teltscher. They finished 11 VPs ahead of Ould, with Cooke and Oram in joint third.
