Finals Night Table Setup; Dave Carliell and Chris Saville are the only male volunteers so far, we cannot lift tables. A couple of more volunteers are needed for about half an hour at one o'clock to do the basic lugging. Please give Chris a ring and avoid having to set the tables up as players arrive in the evening.

'B' Interleague Champions;

The League completed its most successful season ever by completing the double at the 'B' interleague. Derek Latham, Roger Oldfield and Daniel Jackson were all undefeated as the league romped to victory, seven points clear of Medway. The triumph was completed by an 8 - 0 rout of medway 'B'.. Gary Clarke won three out of four in the side completed by  John Higgens, Craig Carlson, Dave Carliell, Paul Callanan and Les Green (guest).

Chris Saville plays in the National Singles Finals; Chris represented Kent at Reading. He was drawn in a difficult group that included Bernie McCluskey, last years 'World' Champion and John Burrows, a past national champion. Chris won four of his six games along with Burrows, but lost out on the spot in the grand final on aggregate. John Burrows went on to win the title from Kevin Tunstall.

Dates For Your Diary;  Date of next committee meeting is to be decided. Finals Night will be at the Alma on Tuesday 29th April.  Presentation Night; Friday 21st June  at the Alma.


Farra and Jackson Kent Pairs Champions; A marvellous weekend for the league was completed by Alan Farra and Dan Jackson winning the Kent Pairs title. Alan opened with 9000 in the two leg final which Les and Ann Green never got near catching.

Alan completed a personal double by picking up the Kent Over 50's title won last year by Dave Carliell. The final was an all local affair with Alan playing Alan Smith of the Royal Oak. Dave Latham nearly completed the hat trick for the league when he narrowly lost to Mark Foster of Medway in the Alternate Rules final.

Ten years ago Dover and Deal were the weakest league in Kent. We are now the strongest! this is due to the dedication of all our players as leagues around us have suffered. WELL DONE ALL!
