Trebes Cup 2017
The Trebes Trophy is a unique event where the Men and Women play separate qualifying games, five of (5) including semi final and grand finals for Men and Women, then the winning Men’s and Women’s teams play off for the Trophy, some wine and a few $s cash.
After a tough battle the Women’s team were leading 12/9 needing just one more point for victory, but the Men’s team prevailed with a bit of luck and skill in playing the right shots were able to take the victory, and make it two years in a row at winning this prestigious event on the SAPL Calendar.
Special thanks to Terry and The FAB team for a well organised day.
