There was national glory for Spalding’s Ruby Hill, Chelsea Tomlin, Martin Spencer and Mathew Orrey as they won the mixed fours title.

Having qualified through the regional rounds, they headed to Loddon Vale, Basingstoke, for the finals and a tough opener against Wayne Wilgress from Norfolk in the last 16.

A high standard match saw Spalding hold their nerve and win 16-15.

In the quarter-finals, they ran out comfortable 29-2 winners against Hounslow.

In the semi-finals, Jamie Holmes’ four from Barking were beaten 16-11 in a nip and tuck match which saw Spalding take control in the latter stages.

A good start in the final settled any nerves as Spalding were 9-1 up after five ends and they never looked back, securing a 19-9 win over Ben Paulley’s rink.

In the national mixed pairs event at the same venue straight after the mixed fours, Rebecca Simpson and Graham Smith were in action having also qualified from the regional rounds.

In the last 16, they beat Michael Knight from Whiteknights 18-9.

Defending champions Sandy Hazel and Perry Martin from Swale won 22-8 in a high standard match.
