Promotion to Division 1 for the Mixed Team

Sunday September 15th marked a truly historic day in the Clubs History.  Following a home win against Retford the 1st Mixed team will spend 2014 among the top teams in the County after gaining promotion from Division 2.  The match was won 12-6, overturning a 10.5-7.5 against the same club in 2011.

A team effort saw the 3 couples take 4.5, 4 and 3.5 sets respectively against Retford with brother/sister pairing of Eddie Blount and Charlotte staples topping the sets won column.  Fitting as the 2 have been playing in the team for 10 years now!

As recently as 2004 no team from the club had ever been above Division 4 in the Nott’s League.  In 2014 all our 1st teams will be playing in the top 3 Divisions.  Huge credit goes to our small bunch of team players who make themselves available to play match after match.  Without such commitment we wouldn’t be playing in the top divisions.

With a couple of Juniors making good progress this summer we hope next summer won’t be quite so daunting!
