Jonny Newton (K85-92), OFGS First Team Captain says "Having won the Trophy at the four previous Tournaments, our hopes were high that the winning run would be extended to five in succession. Unfortunately, this was not to be, and we ended up in sixth place out of twelve, losing the 5th/6th place play off to Uppingham by 3 holes."

Nikki White (V91-98) - ski photo - small
Nikki White (V91-98) and a friend decided to change their luck. Watching as the ‘perfect storm’ of COVID-19 and Brexit ripped through their home ski resort of Tignes, they saw the ski industry they had been part of for decades come to a halt. Tour operators no longer had rights; British tourists couldn’t travel due to border restrictions; bars and restaurants in the area were forced to close; and the usual atmosphere of the winter resort was reduced to a no man’s land.
