5th-6th August: Newport Handicap Tournament won by Jonathan Toye
A small but highly select band of warriors sweated it out in an all play all block over two days. The winner was the only non-club member Jonathan Toye (Downham Market) who retained the title with 5 straight wins, beating John Rolfe into second position on Sunday afternoon. The local knowledge of the Newport members proved no match for Jonathan's accuracy in hoop running, rushing and hitting.

In third place was Ron Atkinson who, following cataract operations, shows every sign of once again lowering his handicap.
