Despite the wet start to the day, the Handicap Finals were able to take place on Saturday 31st August.
The men’s singles was won by Justin Gibson, after he overcame junior Euan Waite in a close match. Euan is certainly an exciting prospect for the future.
The ladies’ singles was a family affair, with daughter Olivia Chesser defeating her mother, Ros.
In the men’s doubles, the Dean family (James and Antony) were outfought by Clive Stevens and Steve Henderson.
Lucy Hamilton and Clarissa Dann were victorious in the ladies’ doubles, defeating solid pairing Holly Bower and Mary Blackie.
