At 15-14 Dupuy was serving for the game but Wright then took three consecutive points to take the first game 17-15.
Wright edged ahead in the second but from 2-3 down Dupuy won 8 consecutive points to move to 10-3 up and then closed out the game 15-6.
In the third game Wright opened up a narrow two point lead at 4-2 and maintained this slender lead up to 10-8. Dupuy then pulled back to 12-12 and with the players trading points the third game also moved into a tie-break at 14-14. This time it was Dupuy’s turn to win a tie-break winning the game 17-15 to win the match and retain the Super Vet Championship.
The Club Night on the 3rd Nov 2017 was a well attended evening with 2 finals taking place. Firstly, Clem Heneghan and Rob Tarling battled it out for the Plate and then Owen Ledger and Tom Dupuy locked rackets in the Championship final.
The crowd were in good spirits and both games were very well contested and the draw for the final competition of the year (the Handicap) was completed.
