BWPPA Tour Stop 1 Birmingham

IMG_1879This was the first event of the BWPPA calendar and the committee decided to move the   first event to Birmingham and start the season a month later to avoid severe weather conditions.  This turned out to be a bad decision as the weather was as severe as usual for the opening event with record snow falls in 50 years.

I started the event very strong winning both my matches against Fred Dinsmore (7-2) and Aslam Abubaker (7-5).  The numbers were down to 13 entries due to the weather so this put me into the last 4.  The following day I played Fred Dinsmore, but unfortunately I couldn’t reproduce the same form I showed previously against him losing the match 7-2.  The score line wasn’t a true reflection of the match, however Fred was worthy of his win.

Generally I feel my game is strong at the moment and I am looking forward to the European Championships in Slovenia on 11th – 21st April.
