Winners of the county teams of 4 are Willie Crook, Ankush Khandelwal, Steve Raine, Rob Sharpe & Graham Kirby who qualify to represent Notts in the Pachabo Cup.

In the final they defeated the Retford team of Sandy Fulton, Steve Mulligan, John Rolph & Gerry Franklin by 47 imps.


Congratulations again to Notts Ankush Khandelwal who came second in the National Pairs playing with Ben Green.

Lloyd is Winter Champion

The eighth and final Winter Pairs for 2017-18 had a disappointing 5 pairs playing.

Winners were Stan Kujinski & Richard Kowalski from Lloyd Eagling & Keith Rodgers.


Leaders now are Steve Raine & Willie Crook with 13 points; Lloyd with 11 and Keith Rodgers with 9.

The scoring is 4 for first, 2 for second and 1 for third. Equal places share the points eg two pairs at 1st get 3 each.

Please note that the overall champion has to be an individual not a pair.


That means that Lloyd Eagling is the overall Winter Champion.

Winners of the Farr Cup for similar pairs are Steve & Willie .

Winners of the Black Cup for Mixed Pairs are the Aulds.


Yet more success for Nottinghamshires Ankush Khandelwal who won the Grand Masters Pairs on 24th/25th February 2018. He partnered John Atthey and in the cross- imped event they finished with more than double the runners up score.
