Bamburgh Teams 2021

Saturday 21 August saw the annual Bamburgh teams event in the glorious setting of Bamburgh Castle, although the organiser failed to make the appropriate offerings to the weather gods, as it rained most of the time.

Nonetheless seven teams (Alnmouth, Auckland, Bamburg, Belsay, Durham, Edinburgh, and Tyneside) took to the lawns in an all-play-all format.

With one round to play, Alnmouth needed just a draw in one of their two doubles matches against Durham to beat their closest rivals Auckland, which they duly did winning one and losing one.

Alnmouth were therefore the winners again, with Auckland creditable runners-up. The full core sheet may be viewed here.

Many thanks go to the Bamburgh Club for their efficient organisation – and wonderful supply of excellent cakes!
