Team Tettenhall Scoop District Snooker Championship

Rotary’s District sports competitions give members a great opportunity to meet and spend time with other Rotarians from all over the Midlands.

Thanks to the intensive training regime developed by team captain Ernie Edwards this has been a particularly good year for our Club snooker team who tonight played reigning champions Kidsgrove in the Rotary District Snooker Final.

Having held the Cup for the last two years Kidsgrove were not going to be a walkover – especially on their home turf in Newcastle-under-Lyme.

The final was played over nine frames and after the first three frames Kidsgrove were 2-1 up but steady nerves saw Team Tettenhall recover to make it level at 3 each. Each team then won one each of the first two frames of the last session making the very last frame something of a cliffhanger!

With steely determination Team Tettenhall were able to put any nerves to one side to win the last frame by a convincing margin.

Whilst the match was played in a seriously competitive spirit it was also a most congenial occasion with Kidsgrove accepting their defeat in sportsmanlike fashion. Our congratulations to all of the Team Tettenhall members and our thanks to all the Kidsgove team for giving us a great game.
