Amazing tournament in Cheshire


A hugely successful Subaleague International Xmas Cup 2017 with 27 teams entering from 6 countries and age-range from 10-77 was held last week-end in Cheshire, England. 9 groups of 3 with goal handicap for those who don't play regularly. 16 through to the second round then straight knockout from there, again with a handicap system for less experienced players.

The tournament was won by Mat Atkin, who last won it in 1993. He won the final 4-2 against Angus Young, who had previously never made it past the first round. Peter Vahle and Andrew Garbutt were the losing semi-finalists.

The plate competition was won by Richard Meddings, who beat Gerry Sweeney in the final play off. Groups were decided using the unique Hale's Board, involving trick shots such as 'Round-the-Tree' and 'The Ramp'. A fantastic event at a fantastic venue, sponsored by Bar 7 in Prague.
