Good news from Andy Prince at the Bristol One Star vets tournament:
"Today Cameron Brealey , Allan Bransgrove and myself played in the Bristol one star vets tournament like we did last year.
Allan won one of his 7 games in which he played very well and he enjoyed the whole experience.
Cameron came 3rd having lost to the winner and the runner up he also played very well, 5 out of the 7 matches of his went to 5 sets.
I won the gold medal and a £25 Bribar gift certificate having won 7 out of 7 undefeated, awesome day great fun."
Congratulations to Ben Cawston on reaching the last 8 of the English Junior National Championships at Huddersfield today (30th April).
Ben beat the 6th ranked England player, Alec Ward, 11-9 in the 7th game (!) before losing to the England number 2, Luke Savill.
Garth Kinlocke was the League's last player to get to the last 8 of the Juniors, about 10 years ago. He made it as high as 14th in England Men,
and is still (May 2016) ranked 22nd.

This was a mid-table match between 2 evenly-matched teams. A draw was practically inevitable.
It was also inevitable that Russell Durham would add another to his string of 5-set wins.
Do his opponents' arms and legs turn to jelly when that 5th set begins, or does Russell simply
turn into an English Captain America at that point?

Neither of these teams have caused much pain to any others, but that's because they are basically such nice
friendly guys. The exception is when they are facing each other. That's when the kid gloves
and the smiling masks come off. However, you can't tell that from studying the scoerecard - no-one
felt they had to prove anything by winning 3.
