Twenty-six teams took part in the Regional Doubles Championship at Kapiti. The first day featured the usual 5-round Snake (random draw).

Three teams went through the day undefeated (Myles Cowper/Michael Rocks, Moises Burgos/Lee Taffard and Dave Gatchell/Ann Hogg). However, as usually happens the momentum is hard to maintain on the second day.

Hawke’s Bay Autumn Triples

15 October 2020

Eighteen teams took part in the rescheduled Hawke’s Bay Autumn Triples played at the start of October.

The tournament in association with The Station Bar & Bistro, Napier, was held during a very typical Hawke’s Bay weekend of very fine weather. Some of the contestants felt as though they were in an oven and being cooked slowly. Thank goodness for the marquees which came from the local law firm Langley Twigg.

This was a great event which was enjoyed by all the teams which came from mainly lower North Island clubs.
