Oliver Anderson-Shah presents the winner with his bottle of Pol Roger

The new intake of 9 Uni students to the Club were invited to compete in the Champagne Tournament on Saturday 18 May, giving them the opportunity to play matches after only starting the game two weeks earlier. In the group stage Marcus Cloke-Browne had convincing victories over Alexander Frenkel, James Gibson and Jacob Haddo, all 6-1. Jacob was able to overcome Alex 6/5 to book his place in the final.  In the Final, Marcus led 5-1 with excellent sidewall serves and strokes to good length from the hazard end. However Jacob was able to win a series of match points to come back to 4-5 which tested  Marcus’ resolve. Marcus stepped up his game, again, with two excellent chases, which he then defended successfully to win the tournament. Special thanks go to Oliver Anderson-Shar and Benjamin Craig for marking the matches.
