The September league winners were: –
1 – Josh Davis – 28
2 – George Pace – 16
3 – Neal Thomas – 26
4 – Mark Pace – 28
5 – George McGregor – 31
1 – Adrian Allsopp – 22
2 – Alun Lewis – 22
Josh Davis continued his meteoric rise and has followed up being the champion of champions for two successive months, to comfortably winning division 1 with a very impressive score of 28 points. George Mcgregor however prevented Josh from making it three months in a row as the champion of champions with an excellent tally of 31 points for the month.
Participation continues to be fantastic. The best league this month was division 5, with 15/15 matches played, while division 4 managed 14/15, division 1, 13/14, and division 2, 9/10. What that means is that only 2 matches weren’t played across 4 out of 5 of the divisions. Unfortunately division 3 did let the side down a bit and had 3 unplayed matches.
The result of the month was Michael Frisby defeating Mark Pace 3-2, in the battle to determine the winner of division 4.
Adrian Allsopp for the third month running is the Racketball champion, winning division 1. He also is continuing his pattern of winning the league by 1 more point than the previous month, this time edging Dave Traynor by 3 points.
Division 2 was won by Alun Lewis who was unbeaten and scored an impressive 22 points. Participation however is waning in the Racketball. We are now down to just 10 players in the leagues, and could use some more fresh blood to keep the league healthy.
There is an increasing number of people wanting a less formal, more social and friendly way of organising matches between people who aren’t particularly bothered about the score, and are more interested with having enjoyable rallies.
This is the ideal setting for someone who is a beginner and wants to give the game a try, but has no experience. If you know of anyone who you think might be interested please let me know.
Alverstoke team’s – Winter League
The teams have played 5 matches so far this season, with each of the men’s teams playing 2 matches, and the ladies playing 1.
The men look to be in for another difficult season with neither team so far picking up a win. There have however been some good wins from the two youngsters, George Pace and Jacob Harris, so hopefully as the season progresses they will both be getting stronger and stronger.
The ladies on the other hand have gotten off to an unbeaten start with a fine victory against Winchester Ladies. Sue Grealish put in a strong performance to win at number 1, while Lou Thomas came back from a game down to win 3-1.
