2018 Khandallah Mixed Doubles participants

Fifteen teams took part in the Khandallah Mixed Doubles.

After a week of wet weather, Saturday dawned fine and calm.

The team with the Bye had the option of playing Tournament Director, Michael Rocks, on the narrow spare piste to try an improve their points differential. To make it more of a challenge for both teams, Michael only played with 3 boules.

Ian and Jean took up the challenge in round one and won 13-5. In round two, Graeme and Linda decided to bank the points (13-7). Alan and Sue tried the challenge in round 3 and dropped a point winning 13-8.

After the three rounds of qualifying, three teams finished with three wins: Kevin and Sheryl, Graeme and Linda and Moises and Kathy. They were joined in the Trophy knockout by Ian and Jean. The extra 2 points didn’t affect the standings.

The Trophy final featured the current WPA President playing against the immediate past WPA President. Kevin and Sheryl took the Trophy with a 13-4 win over Graeme and Linda.

Twenty-nine teams started the 18th Kapiti Doubles on Saturday. Unfortunately, Pete Hamilton had to withdraw due to illness after the third round.

Lynne Shepherd stepped in to play with Dave for the remaining two rounds. However, their scores were not counted and they took part in the Bowl on Sunday.

Two teams, Debby Butler/Michelle Maxwell and Claire Bradburn/Monica Smiler won all five qualifying games on Saturday.

The top 16 teams from Saturday qualified for the Trophy, the next 8 teams took part in the Plate and the final 4 teams plus Dave and Lynne took part in the Bowl.

The curse of the top qualifiers partially struck on Sunday morning. Debby and Michelle dropped a game to finish second in their pool. Claire and Monica were not so lucky, losing two games to drop down to the Trophy Consolation.

After a long hot day in the sun, the Trophy final featured Steve Frampton and Ann Hogg against three-time winners Myles Cowper and Michael Rocks.

A tight match over the next two hours saw Myles and Michael eventually win 13-8 and equal the record of Brian Smith and Dirk Winnie who won four Kapiti Open Doubles (2001-02-03-05).

In an unusal twist, Myles and Michael mirrored that record with 3 wins in a row, a year off and then their fourth win.
