OL Eton Fives players star in national Championships
2018 was a great year for OL Fives players at the top level.
George Campbell reached the semi-finals of the Kinnaird Championship (UK Open) and lost 1-3 to the eventual winners, Tom Dunbar and Seb Cooley. He and his partner Pete Dunbar took the first game in a magnificent display of fives. In a previous year George and Pete were the finalists in this competition which is Eton Fives at its finest.
Ashley Lumbard reached the final of the Ladies Open Championship. With her non-OL partner Emily Scoones , she won the semi-final in style 3-0 and then took a game off the eventual winners, Charlotta Cooley and Karen Hird in the final. The games were close and hard fought and we were delighted that the OL Club’s leading lady player has again done so well (she reached the final last year too) and has got her eye on the being the winner next year.
OL Fives continues to flourish and we will be fielding a team in the Westway Summer Superleague this year in London.
The annual weekend Lancing tournament will take place at Lancing College on Saturday 1st and Sunday 2nd September 2018 . A great weekend of fives at all levels and a festive dinner on the Saturday night. Last year 45 played or attended the dinner and we are looking to increase that this year.
