Fyzuntu UK Championships – 2018
The sixth Fyzuntu UK Championships were held in July and were hosted once again by the Captains of the UK All Stars and The Saxon Spears.
The first round produced some of the highest scores of the day with Mark scoring 246 points in Pool B, Will The Legend 228 points and newcomer N The Penguin, 219 points both in Pool C.
Semi-final A comprised Bob, Mark, Jane and Charlie. The B semi-final was much tougher. It produced the eventual champion and also the Junior Champion. N The Penguin received a Wild Card into the final by way of his score of 219 points in the First Round.
Scores in the Final resulted in Gman emerging as the UK Champion. He scored over 200 points in every game. The results were;
- Gman 237 points

The Fyzuntu Junior Championship produced the closest game of the day with N the Penguin outscoring Will The Legend 125 to 123 points.
One record was broken this year. Mark did produce the highest game score of 246 points but Will The Legend produced the highest Junior Championship round score of 117 points beating his own record set in 2015 of 101 points.

The Coconut Prize for the lowest round score of the day, just 6 points, went to Emilybelle, who vowed to put the modest money prize towards her next girlie shopping trip.
Jim presented the Player of the Season trophy to Emilybelle and the Fyzuntu League Championship Trophy to Lainie and Emilybelle.
Mark presented the UK Knockout Trophy to Big D, the Junior Championship Trophy to N The Penguin and the UK Championship Trophy to GMan.
The new Junior Champion, N the Penguin proved he was adept with Joker play and carried off the trophy. We hope to see him playing in the Fyzuntu International League next season.
Finally, the Fyzuntu UK Champion and retaining the title for the second year in a row was Gman.
