Hawick Junior Handicapped Tournament

The annual Hawick junior handicapped tournament was played on Tuesday, 21 April, 2009 at Hawick High School main games hall. Two pools of 8 players played round robin games against each other with each game played over one end to 15 points. The top two players from each pool went through to play in the semi-finals. Connor Telfer (0) and Henry Leask (+7) went through from pool A as winner and runner up respectively and Tara MacTaggart (-4) and Douglas Telfer (+6) also reached the semi-finals as winner and runner up respectively from pool B.

Connor Telfer played his younger brother Douglas in the first semi-final. Despite a valiant effort from Douglas, Connor won the game 15-11. The second semi-final was played between Tara MacTaggart and Henry Leask. Henry did well to get to the semi-final by just edging out Ross Elliot on points won in the pool games. Although Henry played well in the semi-final, he eventually went down 15-11 to Tara. The final in the 2009 tournament was a repeat of the 2008 final between Connor Telfer and Tara MacTaggart.

Connor began the final with some well placed shots and managed to edge in front of Tara at the start of the match.  The good start from Connor made it difficult for Tara to recover, particularly when she was giving Connor four points of a start due to the difference in handicaps. The standard of play throughout the final was very high and the spectators were treated to some hard fought, long rallies. Connor's standard of play remained consistently high during the final and he went on to beat Tara 21-14.

The final trophy for "Player of the Year" was presented to Ross Graham for his dedication, commitment and steady development throughout the season. Not only has Ross hardly missed a Tuesday or Thursday evening coaching session in Hawick this season, he also travelled to Jedburgh on most Monday evenings to attend the performance sessions organised by John Peters.
