Wolfendale and Davey win at Eastbourne

The Summer Seniors Congress took place in Eastbourne this weekend and Nigel Wolfendale and Dick Davey were the winners of the main Championship Pairs. Having won the qualifying session, they continued their good form to comfortably win the A Final and finish over 3% clear of Kathy and Denis Talbot in second. Sandy Davies and Tom Gisborne won the B Final, and Sue and Nick Woodcock won the Swiss Pairs.

The Swiss Teams was a little closer. Phil Thornton, Bob Holder, Robert Procter and Michael Robinson won their first five matches, but stumbled in the penultimate match against the Hackett team. They needed to win their last match to take the trophy, and did so with plenty to spare. The Hackett team finished second, with the Collins team third.
