Week 4 (20th January)
Bat out of Hell 5 v Unstopaballs 0
George and Adam gained their first victory of the Season against the young Unstopaballs team of William and Owen. The winners would have been helped by both having played in the Kent Schools U13 Competition the day before.
Balls of Fury 0 v Burritos 5
Kieran and Aiden from Burritos easily beat the Balls of Fury team of Joseph and Samuel. Hoping that Kieran and Aiden can achieve the same level of success in the National Junior League in Tunbridge Wells this Saturday, along with Daniel.
Sharks 0 v Nachos 5
Sharks (or Charlton!) found the going tough against one of the favourites Nachos. Daniel and Max showed all their experience defeating the younger Henry and Lucas. It does not get any easier for them next week when they play the unbeaten Burritos team.
Dynamic Duo 1 v Eagles 4
in the best match of the evening the Eagles bounced back from their unfortunate loss last week to defeat the previous unbeaten Dynamic Duo. Joe Weatherhead showed his great potential defeating the very good Liam and Robert. He was ably supported by Luca beating Liam in a close game. Robert managed to win the battle of the top primary school players in this area to secure the Dynamic Duo’s point.
Player of the Week - JOE WEATHERHEAD
Congratulations to 10 players from the league who competed in the Kent Schools U13 event on Wednesday. They all played great against the best of their age group in the county. Daniel Gubala (even with a shoulder injury) was runner-up, Kieran Robertson third and Aiden Craddock fourth. Joseph Spratling was third in the Consolation event with Joe Weatherhead fourth.
Week 3 (13th January)
Burritos 5 v Bat out of Hell 0
Aiden and Kieran made light work with a straightforward win over Adam and George. Having played longer and a year older made all the difference although George can be really pleased winning a leg against Aiden. Having played the two favourites Burritos and Nachos, Bat out of Hell will have easier matches for the remainder of the season.
Da Bruvs 0 v Dynamic Duo 5
Surprise package Robert Coe and Liam Gulliver kept up their 100% record in defeating Jack and Elijah. Robert Coe the Kent Schools U11 champion is making huge progress and only dropped 17 points in his two singles games combined against much older opposition. The closest game of the evening was a deciding 11-7 win for the defensive play of Liam over the attacking play of Jack.
Nachos 5 v Balls of Fury 0
Nachos remain unbeaten with another convincing victory over Balls of Fury. Max and Danny G beat Harrison and Samuel without dropping a leg in the process. They are top of the league but have played a match more than Burrios and Dynamic Duo chasing them. The top three are still to play each other which will decide where the title goes.
Eagles 2 v Sharks 3
The closest match of the evening saw Sharks beat the unbeaten Eagles. They were helped by Luca injuring his arm in a close loss to Henry Cronin. Luca could not play his other singles or take part in the doubles handing over those two points. Joe Weatherhead however showed what an amazing player he is by winning both his singles to keep the scoreline respectable.
Player of the Week - ROBERT COE
Week 2 (16th December)
Unstopaballs 0 v Burritos 5
Unstopaballs will be happy not to play another food named team losing convincingly to the strong Burrito’s playing their first match if the season. Kieran Robertson and Aiden Craddock both play National Junior League and easily beat the young beginners Owen and William.
Bat out of Hell 0 v Nachos 5
Nachos showed their class defeating Bat out if Hell by the maximum scoreline. Max and Danny G used their experience and spin skills to great effect to continue their unbeaten start still without dropping a leg.
Balls if Fury 0 v Eagles 5
Eagles continued their unbeaten start with a competitive match against the Balls of Fury. Lucas struggling with a footballing hamstring injury lost the first leg but turned things around to win against Joseph. Partner Joe was able to defeat both Joseph and Harrison although there was a number if very close leg scores.
Sharks 3 v Da Bruvs 2
Da Bruvs again were involved in the closest match if the night snd again agonisingly just lost right at the end. Star performer was young Henry Cronnin winning both his singles, with Lucas adding a win against Elijah. Jack Wren won his first game of the season against Lucas and combined with Elijah to keep their doubles record intact. Victory was secured by Henry in the last singles against Elijah winning the last two legs 11-9.
Player of the Week - HENRY CRONIN
Week 1 (9th December)
Eagles 5 v Bat out of Hell 0
Comfotable victory for Eagles with a strong team of Luca Romagnuolo and Joe Weatherhead in great form. Adam and Samuel Markham will have better matches.
Dynamic Duo 5 v Sharks 0
Kent Schools U11 champion Robert Coe and partner Liam Gulliver showed all their skills to beat Lucas O’Sullivan and Henry Cronin. Henry is the youngest player in the league but showed what a great player he soon will become and start beating his dad!
Nachos 5 v Unstopaballs 0
Nachos one of the favourites to win the league easily defeated Unstopaballs who could only muster 30 points in the evening. This is not surprising with the gulf in age and experience of Danny Gubala and Max Antrim. Owen Pearce and William Scott will have easier players to face but they smiled and lit up the room with their exuberance.
Da Bruvs 2 v Balls of Fury 3
In the closest contest of the evening Balls of Fury (Harrison Pearce and Joe Spratling) just overcame Da Bruvs (Jack Wren and Elijah Newman). Joe was the star winning both his singles with Harrison and Elijah winning one each. Jack and Elijah combined effectively to win a competitive doubles.
