Many Thanks to our Players
Another league season completed and we put out a side every fixture. The 3rd division was very challenging for the current club membership and so many players will have played knowing that they were likely to be well beaten. On behalf of the committee, the club and the team captain I would like to thank all involved. They are (cast in order of appearance) :

P&D Knockout Cub
In the Plymouth and District Cup (mixed doubles) we narrowly lost to Ivybridge in the second round.
Watch this post for 2019 competition news.
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 2019 Roy Gibbs tournament was won by Chris King and Dudley Tolkien. Full write up and pictures
The 2018 Roy Gibbs tournament had two pools of players, red group was won by Jess Randell and blue group by Chris King, full results. (PDF opens in new window).
