Anthony Theodossi reports:

 

The fourth instalment of the in-house Berkhamsted version of the Turnbull Trophy took place at the end of term. The brainchild of Doug Foster, the tournament has played a big role in keeping players involved in the game and also introducing members of staff to the delights of playing Fives. This year's tournament was a huge success with 24 pairs competing, our highest entry to date; both the skill and sportsmanship displayed in many of the matches were to a very high standard.

 

.

It wasn't until the final rounds that it would be clear who would be going through from the group stages, in the end we had the following two semi-finals:
 
Semi-Final 1
Mr. Walker & Nick Woof beat Mr. Northcroft & Matt Allen 10-4
 
Semi-Final 2
Mr. C. Nicholls & Hamish Percy beat Mr. Evers & Ben van Vlymen 6-2

This led to a final confrontation between Nicholls & Percy against Walker & Woof; the game could have gone either way and it was Nicholls & Percy who took the early lead going 2 - 0 up. Walker & Woof fought back however and after 15 minutes of play and the dust had settled it was Walker & Woof who had triumphed 6 - 3.
