Burbank defeats Baker to win O45 title!

The 2022/23 Berkshire Closed Over 45s Championship was played at Wellington Health & Fitness on the weekend of 25/26 November. Jeremy Baker, seeded one, was hoping to retain his title…

But in a close final Ben Burbank fought back from 1-2 down to take the title 3/2 (11/8 9/11 11/9 8/11 11/8).

“A great match for all those who turned up to watch with both players pushing each other to their limits. Ben just had the edge with a few less mistakes to get the win.” – Andrew Burrell

Congratulations Ben – our 2022/23 O45 Champion!

And in the Plate Final Malcolm Hay beat Russell Phillips 3-2.

“A very close match, with both players making some mistakes along the way, but equally both players were very competitive and not giving each other an inch. The first 4 games were closely won to make it 2-2. In the fifth, Malcolm took a long lead that was too much for Russell to claw back.” – Andrew Burrell

Thanks as always to Des for organising the event, to Wellington Health & Fitness for hosting, and to the players for their enthusiasm, sportsmanship and terrific battles on court!
