UGS Kent & East Sussex hosted the UGS Interclub finals on 25th June 2022 at the beautiful grounds of Windsor Great Park by gracious permission of HM The Queen, the Estate Commissioners and Peter Clayton. The four tests were very kindly set by John Stubbs and Alan Buckland which were well thought out giving a range of scores across the board. Judges for the day were Mark and Jamie Bettinson.

With only 16 dogs competing we were able to spend a relaxed day (timewise) and everyone was able to enjoy lunch afterwards provided by our wonderful ladies Bren van Laun and Lesley Williams without needing to rush off home. Four teams of four competed against each other for the Halday trophy; Herts, Beds & Bucks, Eastern Counties, West Sussex, Surrey & Hampshire and Kent & East Sussex.
