Wednesday Night Mix In
Wed Night mix-ins 7-9pm, are proving so popular now that you might have to occasionally sit out a session. Is it time to consider that 4th court perhaps? In the meantime, if you have to take a breather, enjoy a friendly chat while you wait for the next changeover. When people ARE sitting out or one court has an odd number keep sessions to four games only.
Thursday Night is Men's Night!
7-9pm. Michael Chase will keep you updated on this.
2016-2017 Most Successful winter season at Aston Park
Congratulations to all our team players who turned out in some terrible conditions (is it ever not windy and /or wet at the weekends?) over the winter of 2016/17. It has been the club’s most successful winter and we fielded 7 teams for the first time.
We have one set of Champions- our Ladies 2 team finished top of Division 6, an exceptional achievement given it was their first year in this league having just been promoted from Division 7. There seems to be no stopping these ladies and Sarah Baker, Sue Hoey and Sue Andrew hold the top 3 spots in the players’ statistics for that league.
2nd places were secured by our Ladies 1 team and Mixed 2 team. Ladies 1 bounced back from the disappointment of being demoted by just a half set in 2015/16 and were beaten only by league winners, Long Crendon, who have some exceptionally strong women in their ranks. Glen Hickson, Pamela Reid, Marie Jones and Eileen Greenall are listed in the top 5 spots in the players’ statistics for that league. Our Mixed 2 team performed exceptionally well and have secured promotion from Division 7 for the first time.
Our Mens 1 team, who play in the lofty heights of Division 3, put in some spirited performances to finish mid-table and stay in Division 3 for 2017/18. This is an excellent achievement, especially given there were 10 players who represented the club at this level. Simon Sluszny was ranked in the top ten in the players’ statistics for Division 3.
Our Mixed 1 team came within a whisker of being promoted to Division 3 for the first time but in the end lost out to Aylesbury 2 by a half –set. Mid-way through the season it became clear we had a chance of promotion and we made some team changes to focus on sending out our strongest team to every fixture. Spirited performances against Chesham Bois 2 with a narrow loss of 5-3 sets and Aylesbury 2, with a score line of 3.5-4.5 sets, meant we just didn’t quite do enough and we secured 3rd place. Pamela Reid finished in 2nd spot in the players’ statistics for that league.
We fielded a Ladies 3 team for the first time and while this resulted in the players’ pools being spread quite thinly, the ladies gained valuable experience from playing competitive club matches. Mens 2 had mixed fortunes and are waiting to see if they will survive in Division 6 next year.
I would like to thank all players and particularly the Team Captains for giving up their time to represent the club. All organisations rely on volunteers and we are lucky that we have people who put their hand up to Captain tennis teams on top of their day jobs and family commitments.
We are always keen to introduce new players to our team pools so do contact the relevant Captain if you would like to be considered for forthcoming matches.
Summer season 2017 is now on us with matches in the first weeks of the season bringing positive starts for Mens 2 and Mixed 1. Good Luck everyone!
'Congratulations and thanks to our honorary member, John Dodds who solved the problem of the kite without incurring any expense to the club. Well Done!
Netball on Thursdays
Starting on 29th September 2016 Wendover Netball Club will be using the court for their practice on Thursday Evening from 6.30-7.45. We hope this doesn’t prove too much of a distraction to the men’s mix-in!!! If there are matches on Thursday evening the netball practice will be cancelled.
Second team Women's successful season
Congratulations to Sarah, Sue A, Sue H, Kerry and Anna on winning the ADTL 7th Division 2015/2016 winter season. Well done all of you.
Loosening the nets after play
Please could all the members ensure that they loosen the nets after playing. If this is not done they tighten after being wet and can severely damage the new courts. I am aware that the new summer members may not have been advised that this is necessary but believe me it is. I’ve seen the damage that can be caused by failing to take this simple precaution and it’s horrendous.
Back to netball!
