Playing on their nicely undulating but very smooth home piste, Coaching Inn started well. Roy Pemberton, Dion Beechey and Rob Sullivan took a 9-2 lead against Tregony's Pete Lynas, Paul Rundle and Graeme Kirkham. The visitors made a comeback, however, and eventually took the game 13-12.

In the second game Roy, Dion and Rob played Tregony's Susan Williamson and Tony and Di Smith, winning 13-9.

In the decider Tim Coad stepped in for Rob to play Susan, Pete and Graeme, with Coaching Inn winning 13-8 to take the match.

More games to be played in the near future: it's getting tight!


Simon tops the Singles - again!

Coaching Inn PC's Simon Penna won the Kernow Singles competition, held yesterday, 13 August, at the Star, St Day, taking the title for a fourth time.

Simon won the title last year and previously in 2012 and 2013 and now equals the four-wins record set by David Lynas more than 10 years ago.

Runner-up was Vogue PC's Andrew Jarvis, who lost to Simon 4-13 in a tense final. In the semi-finals Andrew beat Roy Pemberton (Coaching Inn) 13-8 and Simon beat Mark Hypponen (North Inn) 13-2.

Mark and Roy played off for third place, with Mark winning 13-4. The plate competition was won by Pete Lynas, with a 13-4 victory over Tim Dyke (Tregony PC) in the final.

Turnout for the event was very disappointing, with only 13 players taking part and too few women for a separate contest. Lena Daddow (Vogue PC) was the highest placed female player.

A big thankyou to Andrew Jarvis and Pete Lynas for their efforts in preparing the Star terrains.
