Congratulations to Frimley B who have secured the Second Division title after beating close rivals, Old Woking, 9-1. Old Woking did not help themselves by only playing two players but David Mackinnon and Clive Welsman won both their singles. In the battle for second spot Ash C whitewashed Tennis E with Frank Winnard, Nigel Tustin and Chris Carter gathering the points. This has left Ash C in with a chance of promotion. Braybrooke B beat Tennis D 7-3 to confirm Tennis’ relegation. Yizhong Wei was undefeated for Braybrooke with Mark Armstrong supporting with a duo. Stuart Middlemiss won twice for Tennis.
Central A confirmed the first division title when they whitewashed Ash B. Phil Snelson, Paul Baker and Peter Millard ended the season unbeaten. This defeat condemned Ash B to relegation. Bentley A completed their campaign with just two players but they still edged past Central B 6-4. Graham Diplock won all three with Micky Lang winning a couple.
Tennis G confirmed the title in the Third Division when they beat Crawley Ridge A 8-2. Mehrdad Abutalebi won all three for Tennis with Peter Bone and Michael Wolfe each bagging braces with both losing to Crawley Ridge’s Yuriy Schulzhenko. Crawley Ridge B will finish second after a 6-4 victory over Ash D. Ash’s Jo Bartlett was unbeaten with the Crawley Ridge duo of David Skellern and Stephen Bridle each winning twice. Tennis F have given themselves a chance of avoiding relegation with an emphatic 8-2 win over Cody D. Tushar Vaja led the way with a maximum whilst Charles Burton and David Lewis both won twice with both succumbing to Cody’s John Sheehy. A late result from Fleet B produced a win for Crawley Ridge A 7-3. Phil Garrett was unbeaten for Crawley Ridge with team-mates Russell Gibbs and Corin Moore each winning twice.
In the Fourth Division champions Crawley Ridge C signed off with a whitewash of bottom team Cody F. I suspect that Richard Hornby, Mark Stephenson and Yuriy Schulzhenko will find the higher division an intriguing challenge. Tennis J beat Ash F 7-3 with all the Tennis players, Graham Dorey, Jo Sparkes and Ken Lewington winning a couple but all succumbed to Ash’s Graham Thomas. Tennis H completed their campaign with a 6-4 success over Fleet C. Alan Yeung was unbeaten for Fleet with John Page and John Davis each winning twice.
