Floodlight LED Retrofitting – Courts 4,5,6 & 7
The week commencing Monday December 3rd contractors will return to retrofit LED floodlights to our existing floodlit courts. They will take up to 2 days for each block of 2 courts and will try and leave us with working floodlights each night dependent on not encountering any major weather, wiring or control box issues. During the day 2 courts will be out of action at a time and an inspection cover may need to be lifted on the other courts to check cabling.
Once again we thank you all in advance for your patience and understanding whilst this upgrade work is carried out and hope you all enjoy playing under the new lights.
Winter Team Shield
After the first match, in which Team B (White) defeated Team A (Trotter), the weather has had a big part to play in the competition. The following two matches were abandoned because of frost, then torrential rain. However, the match on Friday 16th was uninterrupted by the weather, with Team D (Peachey) winning 11-4 against Team C (White). However, it was a much tighter match than the score suggests, with two individual matches drawn and 7 out of the remaining 13 finishing with 3 points or fewer difference after adjustment for handicaps.
Next Friday (23rd) will see Team A (Trotter) take on Team D (Peachey). At the moment, Team Peachey leads with 3 points, Teams White and Edwards each on 2 points, and Team Trotter on 1 point.
It’s not too late to join the competition, as the Captains are often struggling to put out a team. Contact John Peachey on firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to join in.
The 3rd mens team and 4th mens team suffered similar fates losing 3-1 with both having sets reaching championship tiebreaks to hold their opponents to a draw. The 2nd ladies however managed to bring in a victory against Purley winning by 3-1.
