British Pair Go Championship 2010
This year the Pair Go Championships, the 20th, were held again at the Foxcombe Lodge Hotel, Boars Hill near Oxford, thanks to new proprietor Gary Adams. Last year's winners Kirsty Healey and Matthew Macfadyen lost in round two to Alison and Simon Bexfield, but Alison and Simon lost the final.
The winners were Natasha Regan and Matthew Cocke, who took the championship for the first time in five years. In the 10-pair handicap group, the winners for the second year running were young Kelda Smith and her father Paul Smith, from Cambridge. The Best Dressed competition again featured top-hatted winners: Sarah Wright and Alistair Turnbull won, with reigning World Pair Go Best Dressed champions, Kirsty Healey and Matthew Macfadyen, taking second spot. Paul and Kelda Smith also won the RE quiz with 20 points.
The event was divided into two sections. The strongest eight pairs played in a tournament for which International Amateur Pair Go and European Pair Go qualification points were allocated. The other pairs played in a handicap tournament.
