Last Team Standing Larking About

What a lovely day we had larking about on the beach at this year’s Last Team Standing.  Loads of sunshine, hoards of happy faces and just really good fun.  The final big event celebrating ten years of community ownership of Babbacombe Cliff Railway and a decade that has seen the railway transport over 1 million people up and down the cliffs from Babbacombe to Oddicombe. And back.

Once again, Oddicombe Beach came alive to the sound of music and laughter – what more could you want on a September Saturday?

Full results are:

1st – Team Happy

2nd – Cray Sea Beaches

3rd – Sinking Feeling

Joint 4th – Both teams from SSG – Mark’s Superheroes and Miles’ Tropical Troupers

6th – Roarfit

7th – Greenbay Desserters

8th – Datel Electrical (winners in 2017)

9th – Docs on the Rocks

10th – Moaty McMoat Face

11th – Superheroes

This was the fourth consecutive year of Last Team Standing. But, with teams asking to sign up for next year and spectators who enjoyed themselves so much that they, too, want to put in a team next time, interest in this event is far from abating…..

2019 Winners – Team Happy


And in 2nd place – Cray Sea Beaches

A most respectable 3rd place for Sinking Feeling

Ready for action…..

Wow – just look at those waves!

The audience take their seats for the matinee performance
