£450 Raised for Childrens Hospice at 2017 Charity Doubles

The sunny weather ensured a full turnout of 24 teams from within the Southern Region, and from Croydon and Leamington Spa. 

Our chosen charity this year is Chestnut Tree House,  a hospice for children with progressive life-shortening conditions.  £450 was raised from the event and will be sent to this very worthwhile Charity for the benefit of the children and their families.

The morning league competitions were hard fought with all teams battling for a place in the Gold knockout competitions. Handcross members were well represented in the afternoon with teams in Gold, Silver and Bronze.

The Gold final was contested between a Southern Region/ England Junior team of Jamie Brookes & Marc Cruz playing against Tony Kidd and Alex Hepburn, every point or shot by the juniors was cheered as all of the teams were rooting for the lads to overcome their more experienced rivals.  An enormous cheer roared out from the spectators when the youngsters finally faught off their opponents to win the overall competition in the Gold Final.

Another junior needs a mention -  Abbie Brookes, the youngest player on the day, won the Bronze Consalage playing with her grandmother Angela Brookes.
