2020 Mixed Pairs — Results of Sectional Play
We were fortunate to have only a few showers on Sunday 23 February, causing only a minor delay in the morning’s play. Over the lunch break, the day fined up and all matches in the Sectional Play were completed. Section winners will contest the semi-finals at Belrose on Sunday 8 March, with the winners then playing in the North Shore final to find the District champions. After lunch on 8 March our District winners will take on the Manly Warringah winners for the Region 15 title and a berth in the State Play-Offs at South Tamworth in August. Full results from sectional play below:
