6-9 Evening Series 2023
The '6-9 Evening Series' was not run in 2023 as there were insufficient numbers interested in playing in May/June to make it viable.
The ‘6-9 Evening Series’ is a series of competitive GC events run on selected evenings through the season from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. for those with handicap between 6 and 9 inclusive.
On each evening, participants play three level-play singles games against different opponents, with the results being accumulated over the season.
Participants register for the series and should expect to play in not less than three or four events. The precise format will depend on the number of entrants. There is a charge of £10 for the Series; this is a one-time charge, not a charge per evening.
This table of results will be updated after each event and published on this page.
The Series will start in May when there is sufficient light (and hopefully warmth!) to play until 8 p.m.
If you would like to enter, please contact Russell Robinson.

Gillian Symons wins 6-9 Evening Series
Today saw the ninth and final event in our inaugural 6-9 Evening Series competition, which has been open to those who have had a handicap of between 6 and 9 at some stage during the season.
Fourteen players participated, although three withdrew during the season.
“Who plays who” on each evening was pre-determined to try to ensure that everyone played everyone else at least once.
Andy Jones, Gillian Symons and David Young all went into this last evening with title hopes, having just two losses from their 8 or 9 previous games, and with both Gillian and David to play Andy, a tense climax seemed on the cards.
Andy and Gillian both won their first two games (Andy defeating David), which beautifully set up the evening’s final game against each other, with the victor to be declared the outright winner of the competition
After an early tit-for-tat exchange led to a 3-3 scoreline, Gillian stretched away to 5-3, preluding a long contest at hoop 9, eventually won by Gillian as Andy was unable to nail a number of long clearances.
With Andy then unlucky to leave both his balls hampered in hoop 10, Gillian was able to slot a straightforward winning stroke at hoop 11 and thereby lift the “virtual” trophy and reduce her handicap to 6. [A real trophy was later procured and presented to the winner!]
