Georgie Willis and CURTC’s Linda Fairbrother

Linda Fairbrother, our current Ladies Champion, played with (almost) great success in the Ladies British Handicap Tournament November 13th to 16th at Leamington. She was runner-up in the Division 1 Singles tournament, playing seven matches over 2 days, and succumbing in the Final to Georgie Willis, aged 17, (just a few decades younger….).
The last time Linda had an identical success in the Brit Handicap was over 20 years ago, when she had only been playing for about 2 years. So it’s a case of twice a bridesmaid, but not yet a bride… Linda says that Kees’advice before the tournament was to be decisive, and think positive, whoever the opponent, which seems to have worked a treat until out-gunned in the Final.
