Power pairing do it again
The Mother and son combination of Carol and Paul Wright were victorious in the Auckland Mixed Pairs at the weekend. Their pedigree dictates that they would be a formidable combination, with Paul a current NZ representative, and Carol a former NZ representative, even so, it's no mean feat to lift the silverware for the 4th year in a row!
The next step for the pair is to win the regional play off, so they can try and win the elusive NZ Mixed Pairs crown. Last year they were agonizingly close and finished 2nd. Will 2023 be their year?
