Bermuda finish third in Barbados
The Bermuda International Club finished third at the Barbados Caribbean IC Doubles Week competition last week.
Bermuda, who teamed up with Bahamas as there were only two men on the Bahamian team, were grouped with the United States and Austria.
The island lost to US before beating Austria to reach the third-place play-off where they defeated Canada.
Bermuda’s team comprised Michael Way, Erika Bove, Gill Butterfield, Leslie Flynn and Michael Toyer.
The two Bahamian players were Kit Spencer and Mas Kimball. The teams had to have accumulated ages of either 105 or 110 years.
A team match must consist of one ladies doubles with combined ages of 100-plus years; two men’s doubles with combined ages of 105-plus years and 120-plus years and two mixed doubles with combined ages of 105-plus years and 110 years.
The island are hoping to host the event next year. There are 40 International Clubs and more than 4,500 members worldwide.
