Thundercats win the 2018 Bristol DD Cup Tournament

Thu 31 May 2018

The 2018 Bristol DD Cup was a very pleasant 11-team tournament played on the weekend of 26-27 May at Clifton College Sports Ground.

The tournament was formatted as a full round-robin, with all teams playing each other, so there was plenty of game time, with every team playing a minimum of 11 games. 

Saturday began with little drizzle which faded away to produce a beautiful, hot sunny day.  On Sunday, a couple of games were shortened due to thunder and lightning, but this also cleared and another hot, sunny day followed.


In the end, finals were played in Cup, Plate and Spoon categories.

The Cup final was a very close game until the last two innings, when the Thundercats found their batting, and the Whales made a couple of fielding errors.  The two teams are pictured above.

The Plate winners were Coalition of Swinging Legends, who prevailed in another close match against Transformers from Jersey.

The Spoon trophy was awarded after a three-team round-robin and was won by the Underarm Tossers.  This team was only formed last year with new players, and it’s great to see the team grow and develop.

MVPs were:

Cup:  Gemma Christian (Whales) and Anthony O’Grady (Thundercats).

Plate:  Chrissie Hennessy (Transformers) and Russell “Danger” Cahill (Coalition of Swinging Legends).

Spoon:  Katie Jones (Run n Base) and Chris Hansell (Underarm Tossers).
