The weekend saw six teams of triples compete for the Peter Nelson Memorial Shield at Phear Park. This is an internal competition held annually in honour of club stalwart and several times Captain, Peter Nelson. 

The Shield was won by Sue Smith, Paul Beresford and David Horne, with a score difference of + 15. There followed a presentation of the Shield by Liz Nelson to the victorious triple. The match, which was played in glorious weather, was followed by a well-earned fish and chip supper in the clubhouse.   

Park visited Uffculme for a mixed triples friendly and were grateful for the loan of two Uffculme players, J. Snell and C. Hallett to complete their sides.  

It proved to be a very enjoyable and close game that resulted in a narrow defeat for Park, 62-60. Our triple of Nigel Oates, J. Snell and Sarah Westacott won 23-17, whilst the triple of John Horne, C. Hallett and David Horne drew 14-14.
