  • James Death and Rob Fulford won Open Doubles

    James Death and Robert Fulford won the (AC) Open Doubles (for the second time, having previously won the event in 2008).  In the semi-final, James only had to run six hoops in each game, as Rob finished them with sextuple peels.   However, in the final, Rob pealed and pegged out David Maugham in both games, leaving JaPmes to finish with a three ball break before David's partner, Mark, got going.

    By way of a warm up in the Z, James completed an octuple peal, which ended with a straight sextuple i.e. scoring the last 6 hoops and the peg for his partner ball while scoring them himself!

    Of the club members in the singles, Paddy Chapman was the only one to progress in the main event, loosing 3-1 to Robert Fulford in the semi-final.  Reg Bamford won the final.


  • Four Nottingham players qualified for Opens Knockout
