Mike Fenn reports:

 

A dry but slightly cold day greeted the fourteen pairs as they as they arrived early at Etonfor a prompt 10am start. The organiser was there to welcome first timers Mark and Charlie Moore; Gideon and Elana Osen; John and Arthur Leigh-Pemberton; and Colin and Nathan Turnbull. Colin and Nathan had kindly stepped in at the last moment ensuring an even number of pairings. The number of players was slightly down this year due to holidays, return to University and fathers working outside the UK.

Mike Fenn reports:

 

This year’s Fathers & Sons Championship took place at Eton College on the same day as the Kinnaird National Championships final. This had its attractions in that there were many more spectators at the College than normal but with the downside that all watched the Kinnaird match rather than the semi-finals and final of the Aberconway!

 

Missing this year were recent winners the Hughes and Worths out before the day due to injury leaving slightly weaker pairings at the top level. Matters worsened on the day when the second seeds Andy and Tom Husselbee had to withdraw when their car broke down on the way to Eton. This could potentially have been the organiser's worst nightmare but fortunately the Husselbees were in a five pair group and with a spot of quick re-organisation the Championship got underway with four groups of four pairs in each.
