GREAT START TO SUMMER LEAGUE

We are now half way through the summer league and a number of our teams are doing really well. Currently none of our teams are at risk of relegation and we have a few teams that are currently looking at promotion for next year.

Here is a breakdown of our high's

Our Ladies A and B teams are both at the top of division 1 with the B just in the lead by 1 point, but the A's are a game in hand.

Our Mens A are currently top of division 2.

Our Mixed A are 2nd in division 1, and our Mixed C are top of division 6.


AMERICAN TOURNAMENT

9th April saw our annual American Tournament take place at the club and we managed to bring the weather with us too. 18 people took part in the annual tournament and we split in to two groups. Milos, Katie, Suzanne and Kim were the leaders of Group A and Chris, Sophie, Jess and Emmanuel were leaders of Group B.

The semi finals were played and this resulted in a final with Milos, Jess, Chris and Sophie playing for best Man and best Lady.

The ultimate victors were Chris and Sophie for best Man and best Lady, with Milos and Jessica as runners up. Well done to all who played and help make the day a great event. Well done to Andy for organising the event and to Nicky and Beryl who helped to run the event.


WE DOMINATED THE WINTER LEAGUE

This winter our teams have done really well with 3 out of our 5 teams finishing at the top of their respective divisions.

Our B team has finished at the top of division 2 with a total of 24 points. In fact the B team didn"t lose any matches. Our C team has finished top of division 5 with a total of 21 points and our D team has finished top of division 6 with 20 points.

The A team was runner up in division 1 only 2 points behind the winners, Purton, and the E team have finished a respectable 4th in division 6.

Well done to all members who helped to make this one of the best winter league seasons in recent history!
