BDTTA FINALS NIGHT – TONIGHT – FRIDAY 31ST MARCH
TERRIFIC TOURNAMENT (PART 2)
By the Tuesday night of Week 2 of the BDTTA Individual Championships, the New Milton Club already had 8 of its players going through to 10 of the finals, but there was more yet to come.
On Wednesday night, there was such a high entry for the Bournemouth Closed and Handicap events that both semi-finals had to be carried over to the Finals night. Jack Trafford, already featuring in three finals, beat Jordan Pang (Bmth Sports) in their quarter-final of the Handicap event to face Broadstone’s Krzystof Skwarek in the semi-finals. Jack will have his work cut out as he has to give Skwarek a 9 start up to 21, but the way Jack’s playing at the moment he may well end up playing either Matthew Ryan or Yaroslav Troschey (both from Winton YMCA) in the final.
In the Vets 50+ event last night (Thursday), last year’s runner-up Steve Hemmings saw off Wei-Jun Liang (Bmth Sports) in their semi-final to face ex Milton club mate Alan Gordon (now Bmth Sports) to have another crack at the title.
The matches involving NMTTC players on Finals Night appear below. They will not be in that particular order but a Programme of Events will be issued on the night.
This is far and beyond the highest number of finalists that NMTTC has ever had in the Individual Championships, so why not come on down to the Grange tonight to cheer on your team and club mates.
GOOD LUCK TO ALL OUR PLAYERS!
