Today I continued to feel good and although it was raining when I set off ifrom the flat to the Courts it cleared up and didn't start again in earnest until the final deciding match was being played between me and the current holder and presenter of the Trophy, Jamieson Walker from Edinburgh. He had played in the World Championships in Hawkes Bay a few years ago.
Although the number of entrants was small the quality was high and the games were interesting and challenging. It was an immensely enjoyable day. It was helped in my case by the fact that I won the tournament.
