Crowthorne Runners-Up in the Haslemere Trophy

On Wednesday (23rd May) Crowthorne played Farnham in the final of the Haslemere Trophy, the Surrey Border League’s team handicap competition. In this tournament, 5-board teams play two rapidplay games with colours reversed and the handicapping system bases the winning score on the difference between the average grade between the two teams.

The final was closely contested on all boards, with Crowthorne scoring 5.5 to Farnham’s 4.5 – however this was insufficient as the required winning score was 6 points.

So, congratulations to Farnham who have won the Haslemere Trophy!
