Almeria Palace Cup Handicap Singles

March 2018 - Almeria BC

Report by Vic Parsons, photo editing  by Amber Dineen & John Carr. 

The Palace Cup Handicap Cup was reasonably well supported with twenty players taking part. The competition commenced on Thursday 22nd and ended with the Final on Monday 26th March. Bad weather prevented it happening on Sunday, the scheduled day. The updated handicap list was used for the competition.

In the Final, Ken Richardson after an exciting game won the game against Catherine, (Cath), Patrick, the first lady to be involved in the final for some time.

This was a great game to watch when Cath took an early lead after ten ends with the score at 12-5. Ken then had a fresh energy drive and held Cath to her score of twelve shots for five ends. Cath wasn’t having any of this and put pressure on Ken going ahead on the eighteenth end 17-13. Unfortunately for Cath, Ken scored four shots on the next couple of ends to level the score at 17-17. Cath was only able to score one more shot before Ken was victorious, winning the Championship 21-18. Both players must be congratulated on given supporters a great Final

In the semi-finals Ken beat last years winner Brian Hallam and Cath had a tough battle in narrowly beating Maureen O'hara.

On completion of the competition our Captain, Reg Birmingham thanked the players for taking part and supporters for attending. Further thanks to the markers who without the competition could not take place, Bryan Hughes with the help of John Fitzgerald in maintaining the green and surrounds and finally Tony Lear for doing an excellent job running the competition and taking the photographs. Reg then presented the Palace Cup Trophy to the winner, Ken Richardson.
