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.

League Report

Division 1

IBM A 15161.ibmavssouthwonstona.2.html South Wonston A
With IBM A already confirmed as Division 1 winners this match might have been a light-hearted affair, with a row of books for a net and a champagne cork for a ball But the League never descends to farce, and you can be sure each player strained every sinew. 3 wins each for Julian Walton and Keith Dickenson .

Five Tees A 15161.fiveteesavsibmb.2.html IBM B
Five Tees A were a player short, due to their best player's car being blocked in and undrivable when it was too late to rescue him. It could have been a close match, otherwise!

Division 2

Five Tees B 15161.fiveteesbvskingsc.2.html Kings C
Five Tees B celebrated winning Division 2, with David Wills winning 3. David moved back to this area from Devon and has made a strong contribution since joining Five Tees B in March. Only Peter Erlich was able to make any impression for the Kings men.

South Wonston B 15161.southwonstonbvssouthwonstonc.2.html South Wonston C
South Wonston B finished second, thanks largely to consistent contributions by two of their Juniors, Harry Gavins and Ollie Kierans . Blake Sanderson , who's still at Primary school, did well to win a very close match against South Wonston B's experienced skipper.

Medstead B 15161.medsteadbvswinnall.2.html Winnall
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?

Division 3

Hursley 15161.hursleyvsowslebury.2.html Owslebury
Hursley and Owslebury share the same venue in Village Hall, so this was a home match for both teams. One senses they both consider they have the right to win on their own home turf, and therefore both will have come away disappointed after only getting a draw. Barry Dobson should have found consolation in his 3 singles wins, though.

IBM C 15161.ibmcvsfiveteesc.2.html Five Tees C
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.

Kings D 15161.kingsdvsswanmoreb.2.html Swanmore B
Swanmore B pushed themselves into 2nd place in this final match of the season. Barry Mitchell got in their way a bit with 3 good wins: it's noticeable that he often raised his game against them this season, with a win over the excellent Kevin Sage as well as Ian Burgess and a clean sheet against Steve Coltman .
