Charity One-Ball Championship 2020
The final of this annual competition was held on 20th September, at Surbiton, with 23 participants.
The winner was Michael Broadway, whose club is Enfield.
While Michael received the engraved crystal decanter for his 7 wins from 8 games, his nearest rivals received runner-up goblets: Colin Groves (6, Woking) and Stephen Wright (-3, High Wycombe).
Mike Town (Woking) won a bottle of fizz for the longest break (5 hoops)
The final is always played in a great spirit, this year aided, too, by lovely weather. Surbiton put on its usual feast, and also generously donated the surplus income, after costs, to our charity fund.
This year’s competition was both delayed and curtailed, with only half the number of heats: 22, and a much smaller number of players in those heats: 214.
It is a tribute to all of our regular supporters that we still managed to raise £3633, along with a further £563 Gift Aid, for charity.
Let’s hope we shall be back to normal next year, but with all this generosity and innovation, there is nothing too bad about the ‘new normal’ ......
