2016 Championships - Who Won What

Grand Prix Championship 2016

With the Championship primarily being a Biba-related element Brian Lever topped the charts with a very respectable score of 208.24. Brian is the longest-standing active Biba member having joined in the very first week of its formation. Although he's taken home 13 winner's trophies over the years, including five Mains, this is the first time he's won the Grand Prix Championship. NB: Steve Lee, who had wasn't a member came slightly ahead with 212.22.

Jon Barnes, Ruuner-up, is also a five times winner of Main events, and this is his first Grand Prix Championship placing (he was Runner-up two years in a row in the Ranking Championahip).

IMPORTANT STUFF: After discussions with a few players and after reading some of your emails it has been decided to include the Friday Warm-up in the GP awards as a seperate event thus giving entrants two scores over the weekend. This was decided upon in order that Biba entrants were able to get in six 'events' during the season.

Grand Prix Championship after the Bright 'n' Breezy, January 2017

Early days .... not a lot to say .... once we get a few more events in things'll take shape.

Grand Prix Championship after Cork, The Lakes and Manchester One-Day, March 2017

Now things are beginning to take shape. Mark Calderbank jumps in at 1st after winning Manchester and Sean Clennell is edged out into 2nd. Steve Lee comes in behind Sean in 3rd after his triumph in the Lakes and Ana Mancino makes 4th after winning the Consolation in Manchester. Robert Perry and Sean Jones make it to 5th and 6th and Crispin Duke falls to 7th as Brian Lever, winning in Cork, makes 8th.

Grand Prix Championship after the British Open, April 2017

Now we're moving. Sean Clennell topples Mark Calderbank who dropped right down to 15th as a slew of new arivals flood in. Moving up in the Top 8 are Crispin Duke. Robert Perry and Brian Lever; and new arrivals are Mardi Ohannessian (Brighton winner) into 3rd, Jon Barnes into 6th, Steve Bibby 7th and Richard Biddle into 8th.

Moving down Steve Lee, Ana Mancino, Sean Jones.

There's a good way to go yet but .... if you're looking at a shot at the Championship and you are not yet a Biba Member you have until 31 July to become one. After this date you can still become a member but you will not be eligible for the payout.

Grand Prix Championship after Blackpool and the English Open, May & July 2017

Sean Clennel still tops the listing as Brian Lever falls to 5th. Crispin Duke moves up on to 2nd and Mardi Ohannessian up to 3rd. Robert Perry remains static in 4th as does Jon Barnes in 6th. Peter Bennet enters in 7th with Emad Salib behind in 8th as they dislodge Steve Bibby and Richard Biddle.

Grand Prix Championship after Liverpool Open, July 2017

Sean Clennell is toppled and tumbles to 3rd as Robert Perry moves into the top slot. Brian Lever remains static abnPaul Barwick enters in 4th with Jon Barnes moving up one to be behind him. Crispin Duke falls to 6th as Lawrence Powell and Steve Bibby come in at 7th and 8th as we lose Mardi Ohennessian, Peter Bennet and Emad Salib.

With more events to come there's a very good chance theses placings will alter.

NB: Membership after 31 August is not eligible for the Grand Prix Championship or the Friday Warm-up payouts but are valid for the event side pools in November. See here to join should you wish to cash in on the payouts.
