TENNIS - Mens C victorious over Hedge End

The men’s C team entertained Hedge End on Saturday and the match proved to be entertaining throughout. The team of Dan Cole Joe Beal; Gareth Birdsall Mark Finlayson and Kevin Harris Mark Swinscoe got off to a flying start winning the first set on each court, Mark and Gareth at 2nd pair then suffered the ignominy of scrapping to avoid the dreaded “bagel” in the second set and lost the match tie-break with the opponents bringing out a string of unlikely winners. Nevertheless the first round ended 2 – 1 to Winchester.

The same result in the second round meant a 4 -2 advantage, close but no cigars yet.

The third round contest between our top pair (Dan and Joe) and the Hedge end 2’s proved particularly tasty, with one very entertaining 4 way altercation at the net stopping play on the other courts, and some high quality tennis throughout. Again the Hedge end pair got home on the match tie break, so now we had only a 4 – 3 advantage.

The match went right down to the last few moments, as both the remaining matches went long. Eventually Kevin and Mark overcame the Hedge End third pair and Gareth / Mark F got home against the first. There was a bit of a scare in this last rubber, with Mark and Gareth 6-0, 3-0, 40-0 in the second set and discussing the chance of a “Golden Set”, of course this hubris had the inevitable result with the loss of 5 of the next 6 games, followed by a recovery to make it into a tense but successful tie break.

Final result 6-3

SQUASH - Box Leagues report for April...

Congratulation to all squash box league winners in April.

The victors in the leagues were as follows starting with the premiership.

"A Perfect Day - Jon Day continued to be the man to beat in the top box league as he won April's edition in style. Losing only one game in his 3 matches he dispatched his opponents in even more clinical style than usual and set a standard that will be tough to overcome. Buoyed by news of his impending Fatherhood he is going to be difficult to beat in May's league with Josh Leahy looking the most likely to challenge him providing he can get enough time off studying to put the practice in!"

1a - Will Maclean
 1b - Matthew Yates
 2a - Simon Buckenham
 2b - Paul Sanders
 3a - Mike Pluckrose
 3b - Simon Cooper
 4a - Stephen Charlton
 4b - Chris Khiara
 5a - Mark England
 5b - Megan Thomas
 6a - Miguel Carrasco
 6b - Nicholas Elkington
