Cornwall v Barnstaple

Final Score:  Cornwall 9½     Barnstaple 10½
The team from Cornwall consisted of Peter Dexter, Tanis Boxall, Fiona Russell, Graham Varcoe, Rob Adams, Janet Bell, Kathryn Smith and Keith Wakeford.

We had a fine day for a change, weatherwise.

Barnstaple arrived with a team of 6 against Cornwall’s 8, wielding slightly handicaps resulting in extra strokes of 26 against 17 for Cornwall.

Many close games were played throughout the day.

By the time we came to the last pair of doubles matches the score was Barnstaple 10, Cornwall 8.

Kathryn and Janet won their doubles making it 10 – 9.

Peter and Rob played on lawn 1 with a score of 6 each, running out of time so the match was won by Barnstaple, halving the last game.

The games were followed by a very tasty tea for everyone.
