The competition was a Knockout format with the first round losers going into a Plate competition thus guaranteeing all teams a minimum of 2 matches.
It was a well contested tournament with a good mixture of disabilities and abilities. There were bowlers from all parts of the country, some new faces and many familiar ones.
These ‘Open’ competitions are a good opportunity for some of our less experienced bowlers to have a ‘crack’ at some of the seasoned players and in some cases beat them. The best way to learn and improve your own game is to play against experienced, successful players.
The day went very well and the competition was played in good spirit. The Solihull volunteers were very helpful and the club welcoming.
The finalists of the main event were Barry Jones (Canvey Island) & Chris Grey (Kettering) vs Dave Fisher (Colchester) & Jonathan Stokes (Luton).
Congratulations go to Dave and Jonathan, 2018 National Indoor Open Pairs Champions
The Plate finalists were Alex Comack (Barwell) & Steve Bigg (Wellingborough) vs Mac Otton (Warwick) & Gary Swift (Harrogate).
