Once again this tournament proved to be a popular event with over 25 players turning up from places as far as Southend & the Essex Border.

The random doubles pairings were put into groups of three with each pair playing their opponents with the highest points total from three boards advancing to the latter rounds.

The initial rounds were all keenly contested but eventually the more experienced players rose to the top.The finals proved to be an exciting affair. It was between Proto Carvalho and Viju Desouza against the powerful Marciano Desouza & Vivian Coutinho.

The latter took the first set . But then Proto and Viju fought back to clinch the second set and also took the lead on points.. In the final set , Proto& Viju took control once again with Proto executing some skilful strikes by pocketing 5 coins in a row to clinch the set and a well deserved win.

The GOA Sports Director Lazarus Rato proposed a vote of thanks and the trophies were presented by Yvonne Coutinho, a former GOA Ladies Champion.

A special praise goes to 7 year old Chandon D’Mello for participating and putting up an excellent performance.

A big thank you to Vivian DeSouza for handling the score sheets and to Viju for organising this well supported event..
