Former England junior international George Downing (Bournemouth) won the Peterborough ‘chip & ping’ senior 1* ratings tournament held at TOP TABLE, Peterborough on Sunday 10th June.

Unbeaten on the day, 23-year-old Downing (England No 32) claimed the title ahead of runner-up, local favourite Adam Jepson (who only lost one match – to Downing) in a keenly contested open tournament.

This inaugural senior tournament was well attended and featured players from as far afield as Cheshire, Dorset, Lincolnshire, Bedfordshire, Northamptonshire, Yorkshire as well as Cambridgeshire. Apart from Jepson, other ‘home’ Archway players who impressed were Joe Killoran (fourth), Steven Gray (fifth) and youngster Jakub Kurowski (seventh).

Organiser Steve Williams said: “Congratulations to George, who despite being favourite, beat a number of England ranked players. Also, considering it was our first senior open tournament we were  delighted with the quality and number of players who competed.”
