Huddersfield International pairs

Fantastic event on Sunday 10th. Players from all over Europe – Norway, Finland, Switzerland, Germany, France, Wales and Heckmondwike – played a leagues plus knockout tournament. 20 teams played leagues before lunchtime then the players were ranked and in the afternoon 8 played the main event, 8 played the Plate and 4 played the consolage. Flags of participating countries were flown on the registration desk.After lunch it was a KO and the full results will be posted on NP website shortly but Main event final was one of the best games ever seen at Huddersfield where Matt Blyton & Alex (from Germany) played Angie Gaughan and Maijje (from Finland) in an epic battle which ranged all over the terrain and almost every point was 5cm from the coche and almost every shot was a carreau.  Top quality tactics and performance. The girls were leading until late on in the game when the men overtook them and took the trophy and the first prize. Mounties won the Plate and a Team called And Again took the consolage. It was hot and sunny and club  members turned out to help with raffle and odd jobs which made the whole event go smoothly. Huge thanks to Nigel, Jack, Elaine, Richard, Amanda.More pictures on the way from many taken. It was the club’s first silver event and there are lessons to learn but overall a fantastic day with some of Europe’s top players. The 3 HPC teams didn’t win a pot but had a great day.
