TEAM TENNIS MATCH REPORT 2018

 

2018 has proven to be another great year for Redhill’s teams, with the A teams maintaining their positions in some of the top divisions of their leagues. Notably there have also been some brilliant performances from the other teams! 

 

In the Wealdleague, the Ladies team came second in Division 1 in the winter behind Limpsfield A and were middle of the table in the summer. The Ladies SurreysA team were middle of the table in Division 8 in the winter. We entered a Ladies team in the summer league but it was too strong for our ladies second team and they were bottom of the table.

 

In the summer Dorking and Leatherhead league, the Ladies 1stteam finished 3rd in a strong Division 1. The Ladies 2ndteam who were promoted to Division 3 finished 7th. Many thanks and well done to all who have played in matches, but particularly to Karin Crabbé, Karen McCarthy and Freya Pearce for running teams.

 

The mixed teams have also enjoyed another incredibly successful year. In the winterWealdLeague,the A team came 2ndin Division 1 and the B team came 2ndin Division 2. In the summer Weald league, the 1stteam came 2ndin Division 1 and the 2ndteam finished top of the table in Division 2. In the DorkingandLeatherheadleague, both teams played in Division 1 with the 1stteam champions of Division 1 again, whilst the 2ndteam came 6th. Well done to everyone who has played in matches – fantastic results! Particular thanks to David Whitwick and Karin Crabbé for running the mixed teams.

Thanks to Ross Brown, Lawrence Hills and Chris Hann for running the teams. 

 

Weald League

Massive congratulations to Mens 1 for winning the Weald title for the first time in the clubs history this summer. A number of people have spent a lot of time and effort to finally achieve this goal – well done to all who contributed.

Mens 1 finished 3rdin the winter and 1stin the summer of the top division. Mens 2 finished 6thin the winter and 5thin the summer of the top division. We are 1 of only 2 clubs to have 2 representatives in the top division of this competition. Mens 3 finished 2ndin Div 5 in the winter and 6thin Division 2 in the summer. This sees the team promoted in the winter and relegated in the summer. Thanks to Ross Brown, Lawrence Hills, and Pete Mitchell for running the teams

 

Dorking and Leatherhead 

Mens 1 finished 5thin the division 1, maintaining their status in the top division of the competition. Mens 2 finished 7thin division 1. Though this sees them relegated to division 2 it’s a great effort after 2 years of back to back promotions. Thanks to Joe Reddick and Oli Knowles for running the teams.

 

Aegon

Mens 1 finished 5 in Div 5 of the Aegon competition. Though this will probably see relegation to Div 6, it’s again off back to back promotions. I run this one so thanks to me.

 

 

2019 is going to be an exciting year for the teams at Redhill – we are continuing to look at ways of including as many people as possible in matches and have introduced match practice sessions for the ladies. Please speak to us if you want to know more information!
