DJC @ The Western Area Championships(closed)

Sunday the 14th of April saw the DJC Machine move onto the Torbay Leisure Centre for this years Western Area Closed for juniors and seniors

As a rule this competition tends to be for the slightly more experienced players and so we had a total entry of 16 players

Time flies and this is our 4th Western Area closed since the club founded, as you can see below from this 2016 pic!

On the day we had mat-side coaching from, Mike, Kate, Ros and myself and assistance from Gary

Overall our players made a great showing and put in some fantastic performances,

It also presents a great opportunity for the club coaches to observe indviduals and things that need to be worked on durning training.

Overall the Award for best performing county was this year shared between Devon and Wiltshire
