Pembrokeshire BA Events

Pembrokeshire players were delighted to be at a Pembrokeshire Mixed Doubles Tournament which was the first ever event at the brand new four court hall at Bloomfield, Narberth.  They were full of praise for the quality of the new building and after four hours of good competition they promised that they would definitely be back.

The saying that “If you’re good enough – you’re old enough”  was proven again as the event was narrowly won for the second time in a row by two talented junior players – Rebecca Jones and Ben Richards from the Pembroke Junior Club.  They beat Mark Hubbard and Katie Norrie from the Meads Club, Milford Haven in the final in a tight 3 set match.

In the Plate Competition final, Claire Townsend and Dave Dreive beat Helen Charlette and Phil Gwyther.
