2022 Minor Pairs Champions

 The game see sawed throughout, until Upu & Grant strug a few ends together towards the end of the game, which resulted in Phil & David having to play 'catch up' and go for shots that they probably wouldn't have gone for earlier on in the game. The final score (21 - 14) does not reflect how close this game really was. Congratulations to Upu & Grant on taking out the UBMBC 2022 Minor Pairs Championship and very well done to Phil & David for making the final.

From L/R Phil Poulton & Dave Long and Grant Ambrose & Upu Kila

 
Winners are grinners, Upu & Grant

2021 Veterans Final

Roger Twells, Jim Phillips, Stewart Duncan & Ross McIntyre.

Not to mention Covid lock downs and weeks of rain and player unavailability, the Final of the UBMBC 2021 Veteran Pairs was played in glorious conditions today (23/4/2022). 

Ross & Stewart got out to a handy 7 - 0 lead and were drawing very well. Roger & Jim steadied their nerves and gradually got into the game. This proved to be a marathon of a game, running for over 4 hours. It was a sensational, high quality final, with Jim and Roger holding just a 3 shot lead going into the last end. Roger & Jim eventually winning by 17 - 15....
