B Team report – Winter Mixed League

Division 4

We’ve had a good opening first season in the new Mixed League and have thoroughly enjoyed the format. All our matches have been friendly and enjoyable, played in the usual mixture of rain, hail, wind and sun. In this division we played each team twice, which seems to have made it more intriguing and quite competitive for the second match! Also the ‘championship tie-break’ decider has been quite nailbiting at times! Fortunately, we seem to have secured enough points to move up a division next year, as with one match remaining we have won 3, drawn 1 and lost 1.

Many thanks to everyone who has played in the team.

Men’s Doubles – Winter League

Division 6

All matches played away as usual and while it was the winter league the first two matches in October felt warmer than the summer !

  • Romsey and Abbey :- Lost 5 to 4 very close and hot
  • Knightwood :- Won 7 to 2
  • Totton and Eling :- Drew 4.5 to 4.5
  • Thornden :- Won 5.5 to 3.5
  • Wellow :- Won 5 to 4 what a win !
  • Bassett :- w/o

A big thank you to the 9 players of many nationalities who supported the club , what colourful conversations! ( Italian, Polish, Mexican, Spanish, Dutch and a resident Scot )

Summary – won 3, drew 1, lost 1, w/o 1

This should mean promotion to Div 5 as runners up!

A Team report – Winter Mixed League

We took part in the top division this year, and we played a total of six games.

We had a very good start with two wins and a draw but then we lost two matches and finished with a draw against David Lloyd.

We were very lucky with the weather (although very cold at times) and my thanks to all who played, the standard is getting more difficult as more teams join the mixed leagues, so we have done well to maintain a mid-table position.
