Hertfordshire Megafinal,Harpenden
Saturday 30th April 2016

The Hertfordshire Megafinal was once again held at St George’s School. The tournaments for younger players (u7 to u11) were held in the main hall and the older aged groups (u12 to u18) were accommodated in a nearby double classroom.

Refreshments were available from the kiosk adjacent to the playing hall and the school refectory served as the parents’ room. The weather was glorious.

Congratulations to winners of the Supremo/Suprema titles and all qualifiers to the Southern Gigafinal which will be held at Riverside Leisure Complex, Reading, on Saturday 16th and Sunday 17th July 2016. Invitation letters will be sent in June to all qualifiers.

If you didn’t qualify don’t loose heart as you were up against the strongest players in the county. There will another chance next year!

The HSCA couldn’t have run the Megafinal without the good will and assistance of many parents and volunteers. So, a big thank you is due to all who helped, especially Ravi who at the last minute took on the task of controlling the under 7 to under 11 sections.

Event Organiser: Michael Flatt
On-the-day Payments: Mrs Mala Jain
Certficates: Mrs Ally
Controllers: Tim Thurstan (BCF Arbiter), Ed Holland, Peter Fitzgerald, Ravi Kumar, Lewis Misselbrook, Ian Cross
Board Stewards: Tom Coates, Mo Ally, Kishan Pattni
Refeshments: Richard Dawson, Sam Dias

We hope to hold the event again next year at the same venue.

Please, contact the HSCA chairman at if you would like to help run what is always an enjoyable and worthwhile event.
