2017 Paddy Bollingbrooke Tournament Final

The 2017 Paddy Bollingbrooke tournament final took place today. I managed to get there just in time for the 3pm throw in! In the final this year were Pauline Gallagher and Ollie Cassidy playing against George Miller and Peter Cassidy. I managed to get some shots of the action, along with some video as well as doing a bit of live streaming for the club page. The final was the best of 3 games. Pauline and Ollie won the first 2 games winning (scoring I think) 21 – 16 in the first and 21 – 10 in the second.

We were very lucky with the weather too. Stayed dry thankfully but got very hot during the match!


Trying to find a stray ball or cool down?! Good man Ollie, great to see chivalry still alive!!
