New Ladies’ Captain Alison Nicholson had a great start this summer with both Ladies Doubles teams winning their divisions. Some of the ladies’ squad celebrated their successful summer season with social tennis and trip to the pub and thanked Ali for captaining with flowers and bubbly. Read on to see her report on the last Ladies’ match and how it was reported in the Wokingham Paper…
The month started with a 4-0 win by Ladies’ 1 at home against Royal Ascot 2 in Division 4B and finished with wins for all three Mens’ teams…
Six wins out of six for Crowthorne’s teams in opening weeks of the season….
…and “double bagels” for Partridge & Norman against Bradfield, Phillips & Blatchford against Cav Park and new member Michael Harris in his singles against BCS!
Plus reports on our 6 junior teams including a win against Windsor A for our 18U Girls, an exciting loss against Bradfield for 14U Boys A and a 6-6 win for our first ever 10U Mixed team!
On Saturday 9th, Ladies 2 faced a trip to Maidenhead in Division 7 to play their 6th team and they came away with 2 points from a 2-2 winning draw by 1 game. After a succession of losing draws, Men’s 3 doubled their points tally on Sunday with a dominant 4-0 away win against bottom of the table Wargrave 5. The following week Ladies’ 2 played another postponed away match, this time against Royal Ascot 2. The next weekend was the last round in the Men’s Leagues and Men’s 1 were at home against Division 2 leaders Peppard 1 who had only dropped one point all season. Men’s 2 were playing Peppard’s 2nd team in Division 5W and they won 3-1 to cement their position as champions of the division losing only 2 points all season. Men’s 3 had a trip to Bracknell to play their 4th team in Division 6E and, as usual, Bracknell put out a strong team aaginst their local rivals and won 4-0.
The new year started well for our Men’s Teams with two wins and a losing draw. Men’s 1 hosted Bisham Abbey 1 with their strongest team and if we could field these players for every match the team would be higher than 4th in Division 2.
Later in the day, Ladies’ 2 gained their first points of the season with a 4-0 win away at Shiplake in Division 7 and the following weekend Ladies’ 1 won 3-1 at home to second placed Marlow in Division 3 and our 18U Boys won their first match of the winter against Wokingham in Division B.
The following weekend, Mixed 3 all but secured their place in Division 5E with a 3-1 win against Sonning and on the last weekend of the month, there was the full gamut of results, a clear win and a loss and two 2-2s, one a win and the other a loss.
Our Men’s 1 team had a difficult trip to Maidenhead in Division 2 to play their 2nd team and were unlucky not to have come away with at least a point…
