Success for Ladies Teams:Summer 2019

All five of our Ladies teams were successful in the Summer League. The Ladies A team came second in the Premier Division. OK, that is not first but they were up against an incredibly strong Brightwell squad who have comfortably won the division for the last three years. Our team finished well ahead of their closest rival for second place.

The Ladies B team won Division 1 and have been promoted. Well done to them! They won all their matches and secured their top place with a match to spare.

The Ladies C team, also in Division 1,had been promoted from Division 2 last season. It is notoriously difficult to retain your place when you move up but they did it easily, finishing 3rd out of the 6 teams.

Both the Ladies D and Ladies E team were in Division 4. The Ladies D team ended in second place, thus earning promotion. They had a slightly nerve-wracking end to the season but they secured their promotion place in their final match in which they won all of their sets. This is the first season that we have put out a Ladies E team. It was good to have so much interest in playing that we could manage to do this. They performed creditably ending mid-table.

Well done to all the players and a big thank you to the team captains.

Congratulations to Mens B team

The Mens B team had a nerve-wracking wait for the final match of their division to be played. They had finished their 10 matches and ended at the top of their division with 130 points. The only team that could overtake them had one last game and they needed 12 points to tie at the top – but they lost!
Well done to Ben Martin (captain), Harry Bywaters, Jon Soul, Richard Kurlej and Chris Iles who played the bulk of the matches between them! Division 1 next year.

What a day to have to play a match!

Sunday March 10th was windy, very windy! There was an U16 Girls match and a Ladies C match on at Avondale and everyone had to play through very blustery and showery conditions. Izzy and Nina didn’t quite manage to get a win, though they with Ciaro and Emma had a good win earlier in the season. Well done to them though for trying their best on such a difficult day! The Ladies C team did win their match – well done to them too!

The Ladies B team had an away match that day. They gained enough points to secure their promotion to the Premier Division next season. So congratulations all round!

Congratulations to Mens D team

Congratulations to the Mens D team. They already have enough points to be sure of promotion to the next division and they have achieved this with two matches to spare. Their current total is 92 with the next closest club having only 56 and they cannot win enough points in the remaining matches to catch our team. Well done!

Congratulations to Ladies C team

Wow! What a season the Ladies C team has had, winning their division with 156 points where their nearest rivals has 112. Of their 10 matches, they won 7 of them 16 – 0 and had a record over the season of winning 91% of their sets. It was a really stop-start season for them with assorted cancellations for the weather. They only finished their season on March 31st (usually matches are finished by the end of February). Indeed they had 4 of their matches in March.

Many congratulations to all of the team, especially to their best player Zana Fletcher who played in 6 of the matches and won all of her rubbers.
