Winchester 70+ team has come 5th in the European Club Championships
They lost 0-5 to the Racing Club of Barcelona – which contained at least 2 Spanish Internationals, then lost 1-4 to the Pasching Club of Austria which has 16 members and is basically the Austrian National team. David Trew and Peter Friedmann beat their No 1 doubles pair which included the World No 4.
Then they went into the play off for 5th and 6th and beat the Swiss team from Berne 4-0. Richard Lovell and Peter Friedmann won their singles and Brian Birch/Richard Lovell and David Trew/Peter Friedmann won their doubles matches so they avoided bringing home the wooden spoon - a great achievement.
