Team Reports: Summer 2019

A TEAM

The Men's A team competed in summer Division 2 of the Babolat league. With only Division 1 above us in the summer, the teams competing represent an incredibly tough challenge.

We got off to a slow start with a heavy loss to Abingdon (who had just come down from the top division and were exceptional). Another loss to Witney left us with just 4 points from two matches and a lot to do!

We then rallied and had a series of strong results both home and away and managed to end the season on 30 points and in 5th place, securing our place in the Division for next year.

A massive thanks to all the players that represented the Men's A team in the summer league - Ian Adlington, Julian Ash, Matthew Beamish, Daniele Bizzaro, Christopher Hampton, Giles Henderson, David Stott, Brad Payne, Mark Saunders, Mark Stratford, and Russell Taylor.

B TEAM

We headed into the Division 5 campaign with high hopes. Some good early results meant promotion was on the cards, but a scrap against local rivals Charlbury ended in narrow defeat. With Brad moving down a level to join Wychwood A (transfer fee undisclosed), we were beaten on the hard courts by a frankly baffling Wantage team. After introducing a pre-match curfew, pride was restored with a handsome win over Woodstock and third place.

Thanks to everyone who played – Brad, Craig, Duncan, John, Rob, Andrew, Paul, Louis and Chris – we played some great tennis and sampled the finest wines available to humanity.

We’re looking for new talent to replace an ageing squad, so please let me know if you would like play for the B team.

C TEAM

The C Team were promoted as division winners!  Results were won 7 and drawn one.

12 members represented the C Team this summer, with all 12 contributing to our points total of 55.

3 players were new to the Wychwoods teams.   6 of the players had a 100% record of winning sets!

We were very lucky this season to have been able to play a match on grass, away to NOLTC. We managed to win that match 6-4!

The C Team has continued to give opportunities to the younger players and this has continued into the new winter season.

The team appreciate and thank the committee for providing us with the opportunities to play at home and away. We are lucky that our courts are maintained at the top end of all he clubs we visit.

We are also grateful to the Wychwood Inn who have always welcomed us and provide a great after match venue.

Hopefully we have been welcomed as good and fair competitors by our opponents.
