Another summer, another turbulent time with the weather and a lot of rearranged matches. This year has been challenging one, both in terms of weather but also in terms of fielding teams as we lost a number of ladies from our teams, resulting in dropping 1 ladies team and a mixed team.
However, we have not done too badly as a result. So firstly our Mens A. As of right now, the Mens A have 2 matches left to play, but are already div 2 winners with Farrigdon A a very close 2nd. So next year our Mens A will be back in division 1.
The Mens B have had a fantastic year in division 4. The result of this years efforts is that Mens B are the division 4 winners.
The Mens C have struggled a little this year and are penultimate in divison 7. This might mean that next year they will be in division 8.
The Ladies have really struggled this summer due to the loss of lots of our ladies. This meant that the ladies A, which is normally wins division 1, is currently 5th, however if they win their last match they could end up anywhere from 2nd to 4th depending on Purton A and their final two matches.
The ladies B has really struggled in division 3 as often they could only field one pair. This has resulted in finishing bottom of the table and will result in dropping to division 4 next summer.
Finally, on to the mixed teams. The Mixed A have done well and managed to beat Pewsey to the top spot by getting a walkover against Minety A due to running out of time. This means that Swindon A have won division 1.
The Mixed B team have also done really well in division 3 and have finished a brilliant 2nd place. Well done to all.
Finally, Mixed C have done well considering the lack of lady players we have had this season. They have finished middle of the table in 4th place in division 5.
