The Summer tournament 2021 is over with award ceremony to go.

What were the final standings of the Summer Tournament face to face and the Newman Virtual Summer Tournament (non-UCU).

With some games online and some face to face I have split the results. Using the criteria that players needed to play approx 50% of the games to be counted.
