National Club Champs in Invercargill – Updated Round 4

Results will be updated here for the National Club Champs being held in Invercargill.

3 Rounds of Triples to be played per day, featuring our team from Palmerston North. Graeme Cooley, Steve Toms and Chris Barrett. They lost the first game but bounced back with a win against Graham Skellern. Next up they play the local Dunedin team, and with 2 wins themselves, Palmerston North will need to win, to keep in the hunt.

The Palmerston North Triples played the team from Fairfield (Dunedin) in their last game of the day but lost narrowly, which continues the trend of the locals making full use of home ground advantage. The Dunedin team went on to win beating Victoria in the final match.
