Northern Phoenix WASPA No.3



Friday 10th November 2017
Northern Phoenix players
Northern Phoenix Waspa No.3 saw a total of nine competitors fighting it out in the Open division whilst a total of three flickers competed in the junior event. The event also marked the first ever occasion where all three Northern Phoenix members would be simultaneously attending and competing for honours.

Each of the senior competitors where split into one of three groups – with a seeded player (based on current Waspa rankings) being allocated the first entry into each group and the remaining players being drawn randomly thereafter.

After the first round of competition, two of the three seeds made it through to the Premiers Plate whilst the runners up faced off for the Silver Plate. The remaining three flickers from each group fought it out for the Bronze plate.

Benny Ng won the Open tournament
The Premiers plate was to be decided by the winner of the Paul Mercer/Benny Ng clash. The honours went to the later, Benny securing a 2-0 victory and adding another Waspa title to his impressive resume. Kevin Grant’s single win and single draw were enough to secure the Silver plate whilst similar results for Christos Garagounis allowed him to take out the Bronze plate.

In the junior competition, Billy and Charlotte Wright along with Alex Briffa played a round robin format – each player competing in four matches. Alex went through the proceedings undefeated whilst Billy secured second place (on goal difference from Charlotte).

All in all a fun evening of table football for everyone involved.
