Congratulations to the HORAM LEAGUE teams -  Our two teams did really well this year, both teams came 3rd in their divisions.

The 2nd team were promoted to 2nd Division this year, their competitors were teams from the clubs at Newick, East Hoathly, Wadhurst & Maresfield. Team captain Lee Savage says ‘After promotion last season it was satisfying to come third in the 2nd division this year.  We’re hoping to build on this success next year.’

The 1st team were competing against teams from Crowborough, Cross in Hand , Hailsham and Mayfield. Team captain Dave Hankey says: ‘After a difficult start to the season in terms of results, I'm pleased to say the team finished 3rd (out of 6) in Division 1. Crowborough and Cross in Hand had some very strong players, and came 1st and 2nd, for Groombridge to then end the season 3rd was a great performance.’

In the Horam knock-out tournament we got through to the finals for the mixed doubles, the Crowborough team were unfortunately too strong and took the cup
