Madeleine Probert reports

The first Rainbow social evening was held today. 23 Rainbow players, including 10 new members, gathered in the Orangery to meet each other, ask questions about the Rainbow and also the court booking process. Several members had their diaries out and were busy arranging Rainbow games with each other! Madeleine and Hilary organised the evening and were delighted to see everyone enjoying the get-together. Another one is being planned!

1 June - Jones beats Mulcahy in a 'Phyllis Court One-Two'' at Wrest Park

- then Mulcahy beats Jones to win our 8+ tournament

- and both qualify for National Finals!

For the second time in a week Andy Jones and Patricia Mulcahy battled out a 7-6 last hoop tournament final.

Firstly Jones won the National C-Level (7+) Series tournament at Wrest Park (near Bedford), which was his first CA Fixtures Calendar event, but it was Mulcahy's presence in that tight final that was a feather in Phyllis Court's cap as Phyllis court recorded a noteworthy 1-2.

Jones established a strong lead and was 6-2 up before Mulcahy showed great character to come right back at him and force the last hoop drama.

Jones' victory qualifies him for the end of season C-Level Series national Final at Camerton & Peasedown (near Bath).

Congratulations Andy!

Today though, the tables were turned, and Mulcahy completed another come-back and successfully this time, when Jones squandered a 'first approach' advantage when short at hoop 13.

Mulcahy turned the screw with two well-executed centre-ball clearances before Jones failed with a block attempt and Mulcahy scored the crucial hoop from four feet for her first tournament win.

Madeleine Probert and Wendy Klingon both played their best for some time to finish third and fourth respectively.

The top four qualify for the CA’s end of season ‘Grass Roots’ competition final at Watford.

Congratulations Patricia!
