Some top performances have been recorded by our teams in the past week....
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.
thanks to Trevor Leahy for the match report
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.
