2022-23 PLEASE FOLLOW ON INSTAGRAM FOR ALL THE LATEST PLAYER NEWS AND PHOTOS
The 2020-2021 Season - one to forget and move on from we hope, very few results to report but the coaches were very proud of how many of the junior players responded to the multiple lockdown situations. It was certainly a difficult year for many families. We made as much coaching happen as was possible in the circumstances.
The summer of 2020 saw a series of successful summer camps go ahead with many visiting coaches and good participation levels, including friendly matches against local senior teams who were very keen to get playing again.
August 2020 - Senior Nationals were held almost behind closed doors. Our ex junior Rory Easton (one of our visiting coaches) who is now a full time player in Milton Keynes reached the final (men's doubles) for the 2nd year in a row, but came 2nd again. 3rd time lucky next year we hope Rory!
Holly Williams also made the draw in 2 events, ladies doubles and mixed. This is no mean feat with only 16 pairs being accepted in each discipline.
NEW SEASON STARTS - here we go ................
This was a tournament for those juniors who are new to the sport and have not yet represented the County. Many medals awarded to brand new HBC players - full results here:
