Masters Champion Martin Wilkinson defies the years

Bedford School, Sunday 26th March 2017

In an extraordinary display of longevity Martin Wilkinson, reigning Masters Doubles champion, reached the final of the Old Bedfordians’ Singles championship, held at Bedford School, having beaten former National Schools champion Mark Lloyd-Williams in the semi-final. In the final Martin played Chris Davey.

What is not remarkable is the score in the final, which went in favour of Chris, but the disparity in age. Martin left school in 1964, Chris in 2013.

Do the maths!

A bit of an age-gap!
