George Larkin and Carl Wilks have won this years’ Doubles Pairs Cup at Druid’s Cave!

The unseeded event consisted of the top pair from each team, along with the next three highest seeds of the league season.

Unfortunately, a few of the teams’ top pairs were unable to play, which meant that the second highest pair of their respective teams competed.

In the first semi final match, Ian and Joe beat Will and Rick, whilst the other all-Tropicana semi final was won by George and Carl. This meant that the father and son duo would take on the leagues’ highest seeded pair in the final.

The Tropicana pair – who had lost just once during the league season – showed everyone just why with a good team performance and hitting a 180 to finish deserved winners on the night, with the match ending 3-1.

To our hosts Lee and Attie and everyone who came to watch, thank you as always.
