Collapse AllAdur & Worthing Singles - Round 25 | Thursday 10 September 2020 to Wednesday 4 November 2020 (Midpoint: Wednesday 7 October 2020)

Great to get this round in before the second lockdown and although there was just one group it was a busy one! Keep safe and we're looking forward to getting going again soon!

Group Summary:

There were 2 new faces at the top of the table as Matthew produced a clean sweep of 7 wins to finish as group champ. It was a closer contest for runner up spot but Paul's combination of 4 wins and midway bonus points edged him clear of Robbie and Rob although both had strong rounds too. Matthew showed his fighting spirit in hard fought wins against Robbie and Paul, the latter match ending in "deteriorating light"... well played!

Final Rankings:

  1. Matthew Taylor [W7] 16 includes 2 bonus points WINNER
  2. Paul King [W4, L3] 13 includes 2 bonus points RUNNER UP
  3. Robbie Mann [W6, L1] 12
  4. Rob Coskin [W5, L2] 12 includes 2 bonus points
  5. Gerald Mackenzie [W1, L4] 4 includes 2 bonus points
  6. Antonello Zottola [W1, L5] 4 includes 2 bonus points
