On Saturday 29th September 2018 Black Isle Leisure Centre hosted the 2nd Highland Restricted Team Event. There were 6 teams competing for the coveted title: Culloden (last years’ winners), Nairn, Inverness Royal Si2B, Highland Squad, Lochcarron Warriers & Tarzans All Starts (Lochcarron).
The format was 6 rubbers in a team match in a round robin (5 team matches per team)– winner takes all with runner-up and 3rd place medals. Last 2 teams – winner took consolation plate medals. All games were best of 3 to 21 with setting. Results were based on matches won, if even then games difference and if equal, then points difference.
Winners: CULLODEN (Team Captain – John McCulloch)
Runners-up: NAIRN (Team Captain - Steve MacGregor)
3rd place: INVERNESS ROYAL Si2B (Team Captain – David Barrie)
4th Place: HIGHLAND SQUAD (Team Captain – Andrew Durrand)
Winner: TARZANS ALL STARS (Team Captain – Robbie Brown)
Runner-up: LOCHCARRON WARRIERS (Team Captain – Iain Strath)
Many thanks to the Black Isle Leisure Centre for their use of the hall and facilities; also to all players for their hard work and competitive games. Most teams took squad juniors as part of development experience and thank all adults for their encouragement on the day for these juniors.
