[King & Queen of the Beach Results 2013]

KQOB always has a different atmosphere as each competitor is playing for themselves, but equally has to play with, communicate with and get along with many different people throughout the competition, which makes for a very sociable atmosphere and really chilled out as a result.

The women’s competition saw some close matches with everyone seeming to thoroughly enjoy themselves. Nicola McKenzie emerged as the runner-up for the second year running, with Gillian Lyall amassing the most points by a considerable margin and being crowned Queen of the Beach 2013.

KQOB Women

In the men’s competition, Jack McKeown and Jamie Salvin emerged joint top in pool 1 in an extremely close pool with only 2 points separating the first 3 teams. In pool 2 Colin Paterson, last year’s runner-up, and Ioannis Panaiotakis made it through to the final.

The final 4 saw some good match-ups and great banter, with Ioannis and Jack coming joint runner-up scoring exactly the same number of points. The winner of the title King of the Beach 2013, dropping only a single point in the final group of matches, was Colin Paterson.

The after party was just as good as the event itself with some beautiful displays by mother nature and some great chat.

Thank you to everyone who helped set up and take down equipment. Everyone who does just a little bit of that helps an event organiser enormously, so thank you all. Another cracking weekend down the beach!
