The group stages, played on Wednesday and Friday, gave the following results (underlined teams winning):
St Anne’s vs. New
Queen’s vs. Hertford
Hertford vs. New
St Anne’s vs. Queen’s
Christ Church vs. St. Antony’s
LMH vs. Lincoln
Lincoln vs. St. Antony’s
Christ Church vs. LMH
Dropouts occurring from the St. Anne’s side resulted in an executive decision to merge the runners-up from Group 1 (Queens) with St Anne’s.
The hybrid team faced the titleholders, Christchurch, in the fight for first place. Christ Church had a strong campaign this year, with a consistently strong turn out, and they didn’t fail to perform, leading to an 8-6 win.
A special mention goes to St. Antony’s for being the only Cuppers team to consist of players from a single college, to our secretary for organising such a smoothly run and enjoyable tournament.
