WPA Open Triples

10 December 2017

Christine, Claire and Annick

Twenty-one teams took part in the fifteenth annual WPA Open Triples. After three years at Manawatu, the Triples returned to Otaki for the second time.

The morning saw the teams play 4 games (snake/random draw) to determine rankings for the afternoon knockout sections. Games were 50 minutes, plus 1 end, which meant that you had to get going right from the outset.

In the afternoon, the top 8 teams played in the Trophy, the next 8 in the Plate and the final 5 in the Bowl.

The Trophy final was won by Annick Le Guen, Chrsitine Strichen and Claire Wilson 13-8 against Grant Bray, Pete Hamilton and Michael Rocks.

The Plate was won by Trish Biddle-Amoroa, Shirley Madgewick and Richard Turfrey 13-5 over Steve Frampton, Shirley MacDonald and Graeme Morris.

Yvonne Futcher, Dave Gatchell and Ann Hogg won the Bowl 13-4 against Don Fraser, Shirley Fraser and Lynne O’Connor.
