The Life-time Achievement Award for Eton Fives has been awarded to Peter Boughton OI for all that he has done for the game of Eton Fives, both nationally and at Ipswich School. A well-deserved accolade, as we know he is a stalwart of the game at Ipswich. It is so easy to forget all that he has done for the game and listening to the Chairman outlining Peter’s achievements brings home just how much we owe to him in furthering the game at Ipswich. It seems a long time ago when, as a shy schoolboy, he travelled with the OI team to Birmingham to play in the Midlands Tournament.

Congratulations Peter on this amazing achievement from the OI Club.
