In November the 12 best teams from the winter pairs league came together in Sheffield and Rotherham to fight it out in the British Pairs Final 2019. The competition and the awards dinner went smoothly, notwithstanding a minor mishap when Primary Club representative David Bentley failed to successfully juggle the winners’ trophy.

It was a very close affair, but in the end the standout team were Beer Money (Paul Capper and Iain Doherty) from Birmingham, becoming Primary Club British Pairs Champions for the first time. Paul and Iain were followed closely in second place by Meteors of Gloucester (Derek Bishop and Paul Farmer), who had Viscount Wizards C (Darren and Buffy Hartland) from Blackpool hanging on to their coat tails in third place.

The Highest scorer for the men on the day was Dave Wood of Up Against It from Taunton with a very respectable 208 and for the ladies was Lucy Mabey of Somerset Rebels with a 159. 

On behalf of everyone involved in the event would like to say a massive thanks to the Primary Club for their continued support as without you this event would not be possible, you help us bring so many people together to take part in a sport we love. A huge thanks goes out to John Spalton and Dave Bentley too who turn up year after year and take pride in helping us with the presentation of our awards.
