The Thring's The Thing

James Holroyd reports:

10/02/20: On Saturday 8th February, Uppingham hosted their first Fives tournament for decades.

It seemed apt that the tournament fell precisely one year after the successful World Record attempt in 2019. With representatives from across the Midlands, from Shrewsbury to Ipswich as well as from more local schools such as Oakham and Stamford, the tournament was a wonderful success. The final saw Shrewsbury 1 play Stamford 1 in a nail biting match. However, a huge congratulations to Shrewsbury who came away well deserved victors. A huge thank you to everyone who helped with the event and it will most certainly be an annual tournament hereafter!
