SUCCESS FOR V65 and V70 men at Winchester...
To date our senior men have reached the Semi Final of the Over 65s, having beaten Virgin Active Hampshire 4 – 0 and East Dorset 2 ½ - 1 ½ ,
and the Quarter Final of the Over 70s (our first ever entry into this event), having beaten Haslemere 4 – 0, and Harpenden 3 ½ - ½ .
They await opponents for the next rounds, which at Semi Final level involve Singles and Doubles, as these events channel into the European Seniors Championships which are currently held in La Manga in the October of the year following ie 2015.
The teams have fielded Peter Friedmann, Richard Lovell, Brian Birch and David Trew in the Over 70s, with Robert Jamieson coming into the squad as Captain for the Over 65s.
Our Over 70s County team for Hampshire & IOW, comprising the first 4 suspects again from Winchester !!, plus 1 from Queens, and one from Portsmouth, have now won all their matches in Group 1, and will defend their National title at Dudley Indoor centre in November later this year.
Really impressive stuff - wishing our men further sucess in the final stages!!
