As advised in the last Noticeboard, this year's AGM will be held at the Victory Services Club, 63-79 Seymour Street, London W2 2HF, at 11 am on Saturday 11 October. The nearest Underground station is Marble Arch, and Seymour Street is the first turning to the left off Edgware Road on the way from Marble Arch.

In order to ensure that there should be a proper quorum at the meeting it is important that Member Clubs are represented. If any members of your club are planning to attend, it would be helpful if one of them could be mandated to represent the club at the meeting.



Cheltenham proved to be a popular venue for the Opens, and the entry was substantially higher than last year. In the battle of the giants the pendulum has swung back in favour of Rob Fulford, who defeated Reg Bamford in the final in three straight games. The Doubles Final, Fulford/Clarke against Maugham/Avery, was abandoned at nightfall at one game each, and one break to 4-back each in the final game. It was agreed that the trophies should be shared, thus enabling last year's winners, Chris Clarke and David Maugham, though playing against each other with different partners, both to retain the trophies they won last year. Material for a quiz question?



These awards are made each year to the most improved male and female players in the previous season. The winners for the 2002 season, selected by the Handicap Committee, are Rutger Beyderwellen of Sussex County (Southwick) and Greta Stringer of Nailsea. Many congratulations to both of them, who won against stiff competition.
