There were 17 tables in the heat of the GCH Fox Championship Pairs which was run at Worthing BC on August 7th as part of the EBU Summer Festival.
Congratulations to winners Richard Illingworth and David Staton who are pictured with director David Galpin.
The runners-up were Avril Strong and Lizzy Hornsey.
So it's 37 degrees - what would you do? You probably wouldn't elect to walk 9 miles for a game of Bridge!
It was already hot as we set off from Punnet's Town, home of Cross-in-Hand Bridge Club, for a game of Bridge at Hailsham Bridge Club. Fortunately, our trusty guide kept us mostly in the shade as we walked through Sapperton Wood and down the Cuckoo Trail to Hailsham.
Another terrific welcome awaited us, something which unites all of the 20 clubs we have played at.
Clear winners on the day were Chatterton & Mary Sim with a great score of 60.05%. Hailsham also raised a fantastic £130 taking our total to over £4000 for Alzheimer's Research UK and Youth Bridge in Sussex.

The walk from Burgess Hill was only three miles, so our chief guide, Neil Watts, decided to do it there and back!
What a cracking welcome we got at the Mid Sussex Bridge Club. They even provided us with wine & canapés. We had a brilliant evening with Ian Sanderson & Richard Hopperton running out winners of leg 19 of the Lord Newton Link Trophy.
Not only were the members generous with the wine and canapés but they also raised the fantastic sum of £148.50 for Alzheimer's Research UK and Youth Bridge in Sussex.
Many thanks to all the members of the Mid Sussex Bridge Club.
A short walk this time - just 5.5 miles from West Worthing saw us arrive at Worthing Bridge Club for our 18th Walk in the series to raise money for Alzheimer's Research UK & Youth Bridge in Sussex . The Lord Newton Link trophy was comprehensively won by Peter Nursten & Ken Bays with a super score of 71.02%,
The welcome & generosity we have encountered on our walks has been incredible and Worthing Bridge Club certainly didn't disappoint, raising a fantastic £220 for the causes.
This brings our total amount raised so far to £3741 and miles walked 178.
Thank-you to everyone at Worthing for making our evening so enjoyable.
