Aston Park Club Championships 2020
New Men's Singles, Men's Doubles and Mixed Doubles Champions
In an eerie atmosphere: no spectators, no kegs of beer no refreshment, no handshakes no presentation, the Club Championship Finals were held on Saturday 26 September 2020, including 3 Plate events. The weather was kind with only a few raindrops all day and the famous Aston Park wind not as strong as it can be. But good grief it was bitterly cold for the lone spectator allowed inside the complex!
We need to give thanks to Championship Referee, David Rolls, who did an excellent job of ensuring the competition finished on time and with all the requests of the competitors honoured. We also need to thank Club Chair, Barbara Wilkinson, for her support of the tournament and organising medals, prizes and cleaning the trophies. And let’s not forget the peanut galleries who braved the cold to cheer on their favourites, but who very generously applauded the good play of the opposition as well. But Oh how I envied that blanket!
