The Port Douglas Pool Competition wrapped on the weekend with fierce competition in both the A and B Grade level Grand Finals.

It was a stunning day at the Barrier Reef Tavern on Sunday, 15 September, when the A and B Grade sides played off for the winning spots.

Plantation took on The Palmers in the B-Grade Grand Final with both teams winning a few games throughout play. 

However, Plantation was just too good in the end, beating the Palmers five to three.

It was then time for the women’s singles championship with Christy Colley verses May Wild for the top spot in the women’s single player for the league.

Christy walked away the winner in the play-off though May presented tough competition.

The men’s champion, Pete O'Reilly, was already decided by the end of the season having amassed enough points throughout the year to be a clear winner.  

The A-Grade Grand Final came down to a knife-edge when Rattle n Hum 2 and Central went head-to-head.

The teams were so closely matched the competition was four all and came down to a end-of-day decider. 

In the end, it was Central that took out the top spot and walked away the 2019 Port Douglas Pool Comp Champions. 

Port Douglas Pool Competition President, Dana Dahlberg, said the grand final was a great day with a really wonderful atmosphere.

"It was an epic season; 22 weeks and 11 teams but there was an awesome atmosphere at the Tavern, everyone had a wonderful time. It was a good day," she said. 

"It does get very close on Grand Final day; it does get full on because everyone is serious and they are all good players.

"The Palmers were the most improved and newest team and they did really well."

"I also want to give a big shout out to Michael Knowles, Brodie Churchill and Brett Jurie for umpiring, they did a really great job." 

"There so many people who I want to thank as well who kept the comp running all year, they know who they are."
