Oxford City & County’s Katherine Hawes notched up a record 12th Oxfordshire ladies singles title on her home green at finals weekend.

The England international beat the record of 11 she shared with Irene Molyneux with a 21-18 win over Banbury Central’s Stella Amos on Saturday morning.

Amos’s fortunes were rever-sed in the fours in the afternoon when three generations featured in the successful Central team.

She teamed up with her daughter, Caroline Campion, grandaughter Helen Young and Carole Galletly to defeat Hawes’s City & County side of Myra Lewis , Knight and Gail Gilkes 25-17.

It formed part of a treble for Campion and Galletly in the four main disciplines.

They denied Hawes and Knight a hat-trick of pairs title with a resounding 25-10 success on Sunday morning.

And they then teamed up with Amos to win the triples for a second successive year with a crushing 25-5 victory over Banbury Borough’s Margaret Morris, Carol Walker and Angie Ives.

Central also captured the two wood singles title with Mo Cox defeating City & County’s Jacky Gray 18-11.

City & County’s Amy Stone swept aside clubmate and defending champion Katie Glenn 21-5 in the under 25 singles.

Shiplake’s Helen Robinson defeated Carterton’s Gill Muir in the unbadged singles final 21-12.

In the semi-finals, Robinson overcame Watlington Emma Gilkes 21-9, while Muir saw off Watlington’s Clare Soden 21-14.

Thame’s Martine Du Preez and Margaret Boyton captured the unbadged pairs title with a 20-19 win over Banbury Chestnuts’ Chris Purnell and Sylvia Wase.
