Collapse AllVale Singles - Round 6 | Thursday 5 April 2018 to Wednesday 30 May 2018 (Midpoint: Wednesday 2 May 2018)

Good to get the Vale league back underway in 2018, albeit with just the one small group. Thanks to you all for taking part, and we hope you enjoyed it. Do help the spread the word if you can, we'd love to see the league grow particularly now the summer season is here. See you next time!

Group Summary:

Catriona played every match and scheduled well, and this proved to be a recipe for success as she finished three wins to the good to become the new champ. Runner up Andrew managed to get the better of the Catriona in their head to head, so could he have gone one better if he'd played a couple more matches? Maybe we'll find out another time.

  1. Catriona Galbraith 9.2 [W3, L1] 8 includes 2 bonus points WINNER
