For the third year running, Andy Pringle (playing with ex-Executioner Alex Steel) finished as runner-up in the National Winchester Fives mixed doubles championship.
The pair came through their pool matches with a 100% record to claim a semi-final spot. Here they had a tough match against two Bedford Modern pupils, but won through to the final – their sixth consecutive appearance in the final of this event.
Sadly, they weren’t able to add to their record three titles, undone by the strong left-/right-hand pairing of Ollie Arnold and Louise Mathias. Try as they might, Andy and Alex couldn’t find a way past their opponents and went down fighting, losing 15-8, 15-8.
