This year was the 32nd Tournament and as always was a great success. A total of 231 players entered from across the country, playing in 26 different events with ages ranging from 7 to 80. 60 adults from ARC competed but the best ever number of ARC juniors entered – a total of 23. We were even able to hold 8 Junior events that girls could enter, this is quite an achievement as often girls events are cancelled due to lack of numbers.
A really big well done must go to the ARC youngsters who were Winners or Runners Up in their events: Matt Daniel, Jake Cleave, Alex Grigg, Finn Gillespie Petersen, Julian Hayter, Oli Sussex, Tom Whiteley, Katie Rowe and Harrison Booth.
ARC oldies performed well too! Trophies were awarded to Tom Farnell, Martyn Beer, Billy Pearce, Kevin Hooper, Jeremy Williams, Matt Johns, Gerald Sussex, John Norman, Cath Andrews, Ian Leonard, Paul Ley, Phil Yabsley, Mark Clayton, Helen Beer, Marian Vinall, Sue Williams, Ken Stoate, Sara Milburn, Liz Booth, Caroline Richards, Tish Shere and Bev Trapnell.
There were 3 special awards; Junior Sportsmanship award - Freya Hooper, Senior Sportsmanship award – Billy Pearce and the Winsome Trophy for most improved ARC Junior was shared between Matt Daniel and Alex Grigg
A huge thank you to everyone who helped in any way to make this a big success for ARC.
