England retain European title

England retained the European Indoor Team Championship in Jersey yesterday after two wins in the last round of the singles. They went into yesterday evening's session only one point clear of their nearest rivals, Ireland, and needed to win both of their remaining games to take the title after Ireland pulled back two points earlier in the day. The world indoor champion, Norma Shaw, needed just 45 minutes to dispose of Israel's Arlene Rubin 21-1 in 10 ends and David Holt added a 21-7 win over Israel's George Kaminsky to retain the team title.
