2008/09 Keeling Cup

Richard Tyler reports:

For the first time this year, we expanded the Keeling Cup to 12 players and three courts for each round. This was a great success and all the games were keenly contested. The starting line up featured four Olavians, three Chomeleians, two Harrovians, two Etonians and an Edwardian - a reasonable proxy for playing strength at the top of the game.

2002/03 Keeling Cup

Richard Tyler reports:

The individual Tournament produced some very close matches this year and a nail biting climax at Ludgrove at the end of March. Twelve matches produced no less than three five game matches and a 2-2 draw at Westway when the lights went out! Ed Wass and Richard Tyler were each involved in three out of four of these games and so were forced to work hard for their tournament points.
