2013/14 ORBL Open Tournament Monday 24th and Wednesday 26th March Results

We completed the open tournament this week although sadly not enough entries to run a singles comp.

Mixed doubles;  We had nine couples entered so played a single round robin with everyone playing 8 games.  The undefeated winners from MMCBC were Sylvia Chiou and Lun Ng with their closest game being against Alpha’s Laura Ashworth and Damien Webster who lost 21-16.  However the runners up in the competition were Charlotte Leedham and Paul Baker defeated only by the winners.

Ladies Doubles;  There were only 4 pairings entered this year but non the less the round robin produced some very good games with close score lines.  The winners were Janet Beardmore and Angela Lister who were undefeated in their 6 games.  Laura Ashworth and Charlotte Leedham were runners up, losing only to the winners.

Mens doubles; There were 12 pairings entered which allowed two round robins of 6 to be played, each pair playing 10 games.  Group one produced a clear winner with Simon Chiverton and Lun Ng undefeated. Group two was a much closer affair with Davidson Ching and Cuong Tu winning by virtue of a better points difference to Paul Baker and Lee Povey, both pairs losing just one game to each other.

The final was set and Ching and Tu took the first game 21-18 after being well ahead and then letting their opponents catch up.  The second game was a runaway to Chiverton and Ng 21-8 and in the third and deciding game Cuong Tu succumbed to severe cramp and finally had to give up at 12-5 down, ceding the competition to Chiverton and Ng
