Andy Lee Memorial 2016 Results

Wayne Eastaugh - Wed 29 Jun 2016

24 members contested the first Andy Lee Memorial tournament this weekend and it truly was played in the spirit of our late Andy Lee.

The tournament was a handicap event played over Saturday and Sunday night with the 24 members split into four groups of 6. The games were played first to 15, PAR scoring, sudden death at 14 and the vast majority of matches were closely scored affairs. The winners of each group were decided by highest number of wins followed by highest number of points to decide ties.

The winners of each of the groups were drawn out of a hat to contest the semi-finals and the matches were:

Andrew Shipley beat Keian Mahony

Tom Cornell beat Mathew Thompson

Andrew Shipley then faced Tom Cornell in the final on the show court, Court 1. In what turned out to be a thrilling and exhausting final, Andrew Shipley beat Tom Cornell to become the first ever Andy Lee Memorial tournament winner!

Congratulations to Andrew Shipley and well done to Tom Cornell for playing such a brilliant and entertaining final. We were thrilled and delighted that Andy Lee's daughter, Bridget brought her family to watch the proceedings on Sunday evening and presented the trophy to Andrew.

Thanks to everyone who took part and made the event such a blast. In particular I'd like to thank Julie Cornell, Dave North, Sarah Bedford, Richard Vitty and Derek Collins for all their help and support.
