Some top performances have been recorded by our teams in the
Winchester 5th Beat University 16-8
Winchester Tennis and Squash Club's 5th team had a great win
over the University beating them 16 - 8. Chris Scott, Shaun
Barriball and Ian Garnham all won at 1,3 & 5 respectively.
Trevor Leahy and Tim Cooling lost 3-1 at 2 & 4, making it a
successful evening for the odd strings! Chris Scott played superbly
winning the deciding tie with a thumping, if noisy display. It was
the first game the university number 1 had lost in some time and he
was singing Chris's praise. For that reason Chris was player of the
night. With only 2 games previously played this brought the team up
just 1 point behind the rest of the pack.

Winchester 7th Beat Totton 17-4
This Wednesday saw Winchester 7 beat Totton 4 in result that was
completely unexpected by either team. Top-of-the-table Totton
started strongly with hard fought and well deserved wins for Mark
Mortimer and Ross Shaddick at strings four and five
respectively. Next up for Winchester was Kevin Kilroy who
continued his recent run of good results by pulling one back for
the home team with a 3-1 win against Steve Raynsford .
This was followed by talented Winchester youngster Jack Payne
who played by far his best game of the season to beat Tim Nash
3-1. At two matches a piece it was perfectly poised as Ian
Garnham stepped out for the home team against Totton first string
Jon Bull.The packed gallery enjoyed some excellent squash and some
punishing rallies as these two evenly matched players battled it
out. Excellent retrieving by Garnham eventually saw him win
the match and the tie for Winchester.
Star player: Jack Payne. Shot of the night: An
inch-perfect forehand volley kill by Jon Bull.
