BTC’s top four players headed down to Hobart last weekend to take on the very best of our southern counter-parts.  The Widmer-Bradfield Cup is now into its 3rd year and has been designed to give our best and most promising players the opportunity for much needed match practice – and to foster hot inter-club rivalry.

BTC Boys

As you can see from the results, our boys put in a terrific effort – but ran into a well practiced and in-form group of Hobart players. After winning the event last year – the BTC boys will now have to train hard to put the Cup back into its rightful position in the BTC trophy cabinet. The stage is set for 2011!!
