For this year’s Player of the Year a new system has been introduced. The two players who have won the most games on each team, throughout the season, are selected to take part in a Play Off. Players draw for the board they will play on, in groups of four. They then play each other in a Round Robin format and the top player in each group go through to th Semi-finals, then Final, untll we get a winner.
This produces a Player of the Year for each team and an Overall Player of the year for the League. This years Player of the Year was won by Shirley Stephenson from El Balcon Chicas. Team winners are Black Dog Ladies – Noreen Dobbs, Friendly’s Chicas – Sue Cam, Friendly’s Temps – Sue Wade, Gap Ladies – Simone de Lacy, Macklins Dolly Mixtures – Selma Dyer, Primadonnas – Mitch Halliday and Wildcats – Groa Brindis.
