Congratulations to Alf De Munnik, Laurie Guy and Lou Newman who won the Wellington Open Triples at Wainuiomata yesterday. This was Laurie’s gold star for 5 Wellington titles, Lou now has 14 and Alf 3. They beat Kevin Wakefield’s Naenae side 22-12 in the final. The match was all square at 11-11 after 11 ends before the Victoria team picked up a maximum 6 to break the game open and coast home to the title.

This gives the Victoria men an amazing three out of four Wellington Open titles for the season and lifts Victoria back into the lead in our unofficial club of the year standings.

Well done Rich, Ray, Laurie, Nic & Robyn!

Victoria had a fantastic Wellington Open Singles with several players featuring in post-section play. Richard Corry picked up his gold star with a 5th Wellington title beating Ray Martin in the final. Ray had earlier accounted for Laurie Guy, while Rich beat former Victoria player Neil Barron (Hawkes Bay) in the other semifinal.

And Victoria had two in the women’s semifinals with Nicole Toomey going down to Kaaren Guilford (Johsonville) and Robyn Rintoul losing to Kimberley Hemmingway (Naenae).

The men are now in first place in our unofficial Wellington club of the year points.
