Below are the final tables for our 2 Men's teams and 1 Ladies' team. To summarise the Men's 1sts topped their group, the 2nds came runners up in their group and the Ladies' team came fifth out of six.
To put the league's in context, for Men there are 26 Divisions in the Surrey East League so we played in Divs 17 and 23 respectively, and for Ladies there are 20 Divisions in the Surrey East League and we played in Div 14.
Well done to all those who took part.
The Ladies team played Purley Bury at home on 9th December 2012 and won 3-1
Team: Gill/Nicky (2) Lizanne/Liz (1)
Tennis Box League 15 May-17 July
Congratulations to David who won this summer's League 1 (see attached). And to Nigel who won League 2, and is promoted to the higher echelons of League 1!
The re-introduction of a Singles League seemed to be successful with the vast majority of matches played so well done all who participated.
The next round will begin shortly so please let me know (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you wish to participate. All standards welcome.
7 Aug - RPLTC 3 - 1 Selsdon 3rds
Neville Attwood,Peter Hurford,Graham Keir,Michal Knap
The 2nd team completed their summer league season with a win at home to Selsdon.
We finished with a winning record of 3 wins and 2 losses. Not all the teams have completed their matches but at this stage we are top and we can enjoy it while it lasts!! Whatever the final outcome it has been a successful,enjoyable season. Peter and myself played in all 5 matches and managed to win 8 out of 10 matches -well played Peter. Credit also to Antony(3 matches),Graham(2),Michal(2),Axel(2) and Adam(1 but it was a crucial win!).
May 8: Div W East: Grafton (4ths) 1 - 3 Raynes Park (2nds - Nev,Peter,Antony,Adam)
A tight dramatic match, which could have gone either way, was won by RP when Antony and Adam won the last match in a deciding Championship tiebreak. Earlier Nev and Peter won both their matches. Well done all.
Sarah & Neville won 6-2, 6-2 vs Lucy & Steven
One black eye, a dodgy calf , broken strings and some good tennis were served up to several hardy spectators on Monday night. Despite Lucy's warming up accident and Steve's calf strain, they put up a spirited performance but in the end Sarah and Neville prevailed, the key moment being Sarah's game-winning string-busting volley mid way through the second set!
Many thanks to Sarah for organising a successful tournament and to all it's participants.
Banstead Downs 1 - RPRLTC 3 (Neville, Peter, Axel,Antony)
The Men's 2nds finished the Winter Season on a high note with a excellent win against Banstead Downs.
This completes a successful campaign in the Surrey Division Y West with 4 wins out of 5.
Ashtead 1 - RPRLT 3
An hour's effort to de-ice the Ashtead courts with brooms,hot water and salt was all worthwhile as the 2nd team (Axel,Peter,Anthony and myself) won a closely contested match.
Well played all
