Please note contact details for our team captains are included at the end of this page.

 

We encourage all members to regularly check home match fixtures to avoid disappointment when arranging to play at the club, particularly during weekends. Select 'Matches" heading to see upcoming matches for a particular day. When playing at home, Aston Park will appear before the name of the opposition.

 

Ladies 1 continue winning ways

 

Ladies 1 (Sarah B, Sue H, Pamela, Anne and Sarah M) top Division 3 as England enters a 2nd lockdown. Wins over Chesham 1879 (5-3 sets) and Princes Risborough (7.5 to 0.5 sets) suggest the team should be able to hold their own in Division 3, following promotion from Division 4 last winter.

 

 

Mixed 1 start season with a win

 

Mixed 1 (Andrew, Sarah B, Nathan and Sue) recorded an excellent 7-1 sets win over Thame Mixed 1 just before lockdown.  The Thame players were very vocal about disliking hard courts but the Aston Park players stepped up their games, and in competitive sets, took full advantage of a home fixture.

 

 

Ladies 1 are Division 4 Champions

 

Ladies 1 remained undefeated for the winter 2019-2020 season with a possible 23 points out of 24. Congratulations to the regulars- Sarah Baker, Anne Green, Sue Hoey, Sarah Miller and Pamela Reid. However, injuries also meant the Ladies 2 players also contributed key sets to help secure these wins.

Men's 2 Win Division 7 Winter League 

 

Congratulations to our men’s 2 team players, champions of the 2019/20 Division 7 winter league and promoted to Division 6. A fantastic team effort.

 

 

Mixed 3's Darkest Hour

 

After leading the League Table since before Christmas, Mixed 3 arrived at the final reckoning with their postponed match v Prestwood to be played on September 8th. We had 17 points; they had 14, but with two matches in hand. A win for us in this encounter would secure the trophy for Aston Park.

The match was a classic, with both teams taking it in turn to surge ahead, only to be caught up and overtaken by the dogged determination of the opposition.

With Prestwood leading 3.5 to 2.5 sets, Glen and Elliot at 5-0, Chris and Pete at 3-1 in the last two sets and with the momentum most definitely with Aston Park, the trophy was within our grasp. But then... disaster. The floodlights went off.

The only thing that we could do was to declare the match a draw. With Elliot and Glen on a roll, that set was conceded to us and although Pete and Chris were pretty sure things would continue to go their way, the feisty pair from Prestwood had come from behind too many times during the evening to concede that set too. And with the twists and turns that both teams had experienced throughout the match an equitable draw was perhaps the fairest outcome. However, it lost us the trophy. Prestwood went on to win both their outstanding matches in convincing style 8-0, 8-0! Congratulations Lee on a very successful season.

Congratulations too to Glen, Chris, Louise, Tom, Jack, Richard, Adrian, Pete and Elliot for an outstanding season. When we entered a third mixed last September we weren’t even sure we would be able to complete the season, we had so few players. Who could have imagined then, that we would be competing for the trophy right down to our very last match. Ah well .... Next year perhaps.
