London Region ladies didn't disappoint at the IWF Oxshott women event - by Len Griffiths

We had two ladies teams taking part and there were 32 entries from across England including top teams like Southern; Chiltern and Kent.

In the morning the 32 teams split into 4 groups and played a Round Robin. Both our London Region teams had a successful morning.

The double from LPC (Christine Nicholas and Melanie Smith won 2 and lost one 12-13) and from Croydon (Sue Azzopardi and Cecily Webb who won all 3 games) each topped their group and both went into the GOLD competition.

The 32 teams broke for lunch and during the recess, were split into 4 groups namely GOLD, SILVER, BRONZE and PLATE ready for the afternoon knockout competition.

In the afternoon session Christine & Melanie beat a Kent Team, then lost to HoE - so overall they finished 5th in the GOLD competition and Sue and Cecily lost twice (once to Southern, eventual winners) and thus finished 7th in the GOLD competition. Well done all.
