Tuesday Triples League Result

Fantastic close finish to this season’s Tuesday Triples with Hants coming from way back to deny Sussex the title with 14 shots on the last 7 ends to win 17-16 on the last shot. This gave Essex the top place on shot difference. Essex were well beaten by Kent in their final match. Well done to all the teams for an enjoyable season and to John Davison for running the league.
