Tournaments

The two usual Edgbaston AC tournaments are being held in 2024 as follows:

The Sally Nicholls Trophy B level took place on 8th/9th June with 10 competitors.
Although rapid improver Ged Smolskas (upon entry within the 2 – 8 handicap range but now down to 0.5!) was undefeated, he was given a good run for his money by the other competitors and, based on the flexible Swiss format, there were four runners up. A good time was had by all and our lawns were much complimented on!

The Tompkinson Shield A level will take place on 17th/18th August. Entry via the CE online system.

The 2023 annual A class Tompkinson Shield took place on 19th/20th August.

Andrew Gregory reports: “Jack Good won the Tompkinson Shield at Edgbaston. A full complement of 14 chaps gathered for the Super-B (or Stars Barred) tournament at Edgbaston. At the end of Saturday 8 players had 50% or better, so a knock-out was decreed. The final had defending champion Clive Goode play the up-and-coming 17 year-old Jack Good. Good was too good for Goode. Jack also collected the gold award for his first triple peel. The other TP of the weekend was by Neil Adams.”

The competitors were Neil Adams, Martin Beacon, Gary Bennett, Ian Draper, Jack Good, Clive Goode, Andrew Gregory (our very able Manager), Charles Harding, Adrian Kirby, Gordon Mills, Mark Simmerson, Ian Slater, Nick Steiner and Jonathan Wolfe.
