It was a tough first month in the Winter League for our teams with 4 wins and 8 losses but some good individual performances, nevertheless…
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…
