Xmas open tourney 2018 - Sunday 9th December
Congratulations to all the prize winners and especially to all those in the novice groups who were brave enough to enter a tournament for the first time. A large amount of cake was consumed and second hand trading of unwanted kit raised £61 for Hospice in the Weald.
Kent Junior Restricted: 15/16th Sept
Special mention to our multiple title winners:
David Lang: U16 singles and doubles (with Avaneesh Sirugudi)
Sofia Bao: U14 Singles and doubles, U16 Singles and doubles (with Kitty Pope)
It was a great weekend for HBC juniors despite several of our strongest players being away on international duties - 13 from 16 titles were bagged. Too many to mention everyone individually but please look at results here and on the notice boards. Mili Patel has to be commended for winning U12 boys doubles and bronze in the U12 boys singles. She would undoubtedly have been a worthy U12 girls champion had we had any girls entries for her to compete against! Congratulations to everyone who took part.
Kent Senior Restricted: 29/30th Sept
4 from 5 senior Kent titles- all junior players. The older players have to up their game even to make the teams these days. Well done all of you.
Results here. Mehar - please send photo!
