8th March: Senior/Veteran

Only 13 players took part in this tournament, which necessitated a move to a smaller venue (Slinfold School). The seniors only had four players. Dan Pound (Sx) had a very good win over his team-mate, Mark Collins (Sx) in the decisive match.

In the Veterans, second seed Marlow had an unexpected loss in the group to Simon Kempton (Sy), which meant he faced top seed, Scott in the semis. Marlow only just overcame Ludovic Montiel (Bk) 11-9 in the fifth before defeating Scott 3-2. However, in the final he reversed his loss to Kempton in straight games. Kempton had scraped a win in the semis 11-9 in the fifth over Cameron Brealey (Ha).

In the Open, Scott and Bronziet both won their semi-finals 3-2 vs Tom Kinga (Sx) & Brealey (Ha) respectively. Scott defeated Bronziet in four close games in the final.
