Farmer Tournament 2022

The Farmer Tournament, an invitation mixed doubles named in memory of RLTC board member John Farmer, took place on Sunday 7th August. The sun shone throughout the day on the 34 couples who had entered and the many spectators who turned up to show their support. The bar did an excellent job of quenching everyone’s thirst and the Pink Kitchen provided a delicious BBQ. With all group matches completed, the semi-final saw previous winners Scott Brotherton and Vicki Lowe battle it out against Peter Ludgate and Tina Bird. Facing a fierce handicap against them, the former champions were victorious and went on to face Lucy Stephenson and Luke Alderwick, who had come through the other semi-final against Jim Ross and Katie Menzies. Local duo Scott and Vicki stormed ahead in the final to take the trophy, which was presented by Club chairman Jonathan Jempson. Thanks to Amy Maynard for running the tournament.
