May 2011: Malik and Woods win at Aldenham
Bob Pace reports:
The 2011 Heath Tournament was played on Sunday 22 May under (sometimes) sunny skies. The competitors ranged in age from the veterans like Martin Lindsay, James Fredenham and Richard Dennis to the decidedly young faced Carl Rennie and Simon Turpin, so making the competition an agreeable mix of ages and experience. Most competitors were members of the Aldenham Club but Gareth Hoskins and Courtney Friend were welcome guests.

The field was split into two groups so that less experienced players were always paired with a more experienced one. Each round saw the partners rotated so by the end of round 8 each person had played with everyone from the other group and against everyone else in their group.
Summer 2011: Scholars and Rogues at Berkhamsted
Anthony Theodossi reports:
The fourth instalment of the in-house Berkhamsted version of the Turnbull Trophy took place at the end of term. The brainchild of Doug Foster, the tournament has played a big role in keeping players involved in the game and also introducing members of staff to the delights of playing Fives. This year's tournament was a huge success with 24 pairs competing, our highest entry to date; both the skill and sportsmanship displayed in many of the matches were to a very high standard.
