Ladies 1 116th13
Ladies 2195th20

Some main points are:

1. Olga is actively looking for committed team players as now is Lucy – we have 2 ladies teams and are hoping we can attract more team players to help us climb back up to where we used to sit in the tables.

2. Ashley took over the seconds and even though hasn’t always played owing to uni commitments, he has captained the seconds to 1st place finishes in both seasons making this team the ‘team of the year’ in terms of results. Keep it up lads!

3. The mens firsts have been making the most of our performance juniors – Robin has played several times and Ryan’s recent debut saw him gain a convincing 7-5, 6-2 and 6-2, 6-0 wins with Simon over strong players. We anticipate once Dominic and Ashley have finished Uni soon they will be well placed to help us climb again.

4. Well done to mens teams 3 and 5 for promotions both seasons and we think the 4ths will be adjusted to 2nd place in summer so well done too. The 6ths also managed a promotion in winter.

Team Tennis Results 2019:

Our Aegon teams were in action over the spring. The Men’s first team, having been promoted the year before, managed a very respectable mid-table finish in division 4 and will look to improve further next season. Well done to the players involved: Simon Burgess, Chris Keating, Mike Needham, Ashley Horsman, Arthur Ewins, Robin Mcalpine, Dominic Sandy & Shaun Malcolm.

For the first time, we also entered a new Men’s second team, competing in only one division lower than our first team in division 5. The season proved to be difficult, but we look forward to a more competitive league next year. Well done to all those involved: Taegun Kim, Chris Smith, Colin Jones, Russell Vovsey, Adam Tomes, Joshua Marshall, Ashley Horsman, Bryan Nielsen & Jack Harvey.

We also entered a U14 Boys team in the South East Premier Division. This is the highest possible level, with a 1st place finish giving qualification to the National Finals. Cheam LTC finished runners up in the division after winning 3 out of 4 matches. Well done to the team on a fantastic result, despite only just missing out on the National Finals. The players involved were Robin Mcalpine, James Beaven, Ryan Papazov, Arthur Ewins & Callum Dickson.
