Riverstone Award

It is such a rare occurrence to win all 5 matches in a Riverside Tournament, that a new award has been introduced.

The recipient is presented with a simple river stone of their choice. This keepsake will no doubt be handed down the generations, and form part of the folklore of their extraordinary feat that day.

Congratulations to Paul Hill as the sole winner of the Riverstone Award for this tournament.
