The draws have been done for the Cambridge area competitions - pretty good turnout for the uni this year. I also still have one more place at the CAPL Open available if anyone wants it - first come first served.

All of the draws with uni players highlighted are attached to this post, or you can read through them on the CAPL site. First thoughts - a winnable singles venue for Chris with Gary Browne the only other Prem player to worry about. Lorry's got it fairly tough, but Paul's definitely got the short straw (all prem players, venue miles away).

First up is the Open next saturday (22nd). Make sure you check your start time, and I'll see you there.

Good luck to everyone.

Good day for the uni at the open yesterday. Steve McCann reached the final with victories over Ed Savory, Joey Wong and Paul Reed only to be stopped by form man and defending champion Michael O'Boyle (MOTM A) who played superbly all day to retain his title.

Graham and I also reached the quarter finals and Tom Stephens, Tim Henshaw and Josh Cadney won their opening matches.

Yeah - O'Boyle was on superb form and there's no shame in Steve's losing to him.

I was pretty impressed by the Uni's performance overall, with 7 people making it through the first round, including some new faces. We then had 4 in the last 16 (Rob A, Rob H, Me and Steve, then 3 in the last 8, which was more than any other club including the Moon. Then of course Steve got to the final, which turned a few heads and made some of the other top players take note of a new player on the scene.
