P&D Knockout Cub

In the Plymouth and District Cup (mixed doubles) we narrowly lost to Ivybridge in the second round.

Club Competitions

The club runs singles and doubles tournaments for members, the exact nature depends on how many want to play. Last year we ran a mens singles competition and a mixed doubles. Additionally we do a round-robin doubles competition named in honour of Roy Gibbs, who died whilst playing for this club. In the Roy Gibbs format each player plays both with and against their partner, this may sound complicated but is fun and somewhat unpredictable.

The 2018 Roy Gibbs tournament had two pools of players, red group was won by Jess Randle and blue group by Chris King, full results. (PDF opens in new window).
