2019 Brampton – Hamilton Challenge
February 3, 2019
The first part of the Annual Brampton – Hamilton Friendship Challenge Tournament was held at the Hamilton Horseshoe Pitching Club.
On Saturday February 2nd. 18 of Hamilton’s finest took on 18 of Brampton’s finest. The results were the same as last year with Hamilton coming out ahead 61 wins to Brampton’s 47. This was a slight improvement over last year when Hamilton had 67 wins.
The second part will take place at the Brampton Courts in July (date will be posted later). If history repeats itself Brampton will win at their home courts and will take home the Trophy for a third year in a row. I think Hamilton will have something to say about the outcome.
The one thing I left out was that this is a Fun Day, the players want to win, but don’t take it to seriously.
