|2019 League Rose Bowl Mixed Doubles at West Heaton|
The 2019 League Rose Bowl Report
Played in “summery” ideal conditions at the end of June at West Heaton. The usual multi-format was employed where each couple will play in their own final against their own equivalent level competition which was decided by their position in the group matches. The top two couples in their respective divisions competed for the Rose Bowl Trophy (Level 1) playing first to 7 games and a tie-break, if necessary, at 6-6. Hale couple, Ben Scapens and Olivia Smith, played Prestbury Village couple, Sean Sivewright and Olivia Brown. A fine competitive match resulted although Prestbury were able to maintain their initial dominance by winning 7 – 4.
The winners or the other finals were as follows: Level 2 Bramhall Lane (from Northern); Level 3: Heyes Grove A (from West Heaton A); Level 4: Heaton Mersey (from Davenport); Level 5: Lindow (from West Heaton B); Level 6: Heyes Grove B.
Prizes were presented by League Vice–President, Peter Jackson with the West Heaton President, Dr. Joyce Barclay attending the presentation photo. The event was organised by Barry Oswald for the League.
