The ladies of Copthorne, Ifield, Haywards Heath and Mannings Heath play a Winter League each year. Due to poor weather over the past three winters, it was agreed not to play the home and away matches but play for the shield at a big get together in March instead. It was played at Mannings Heath on Monday, and each club provided eight pairs of silver/bronze players with the best six scores to count.
The overall winners of the shield were Copthorne with 198 points beating Mannings Heath into second place with 190 points.
There were individual prizes for the three best scores:
Winners – Jane Davidson & Wendy Jones Copthorne 38 points
2nd – Rosemary Martin & Pat Griffiths Mannings Heath 35 points ocb
3rd – Ann Howard & Sam Mitchell Copthorne 35 points
It was a great event to start the new season and everyone had a good time catching up over lunch.
