A Surprise result!



Hi everyone,

Well it’s been another great week in the Poole Pairs with many surprise results!

  • First up came ALOOO vs Grant and Co, which had previously ended as a 13-6 victory for Grant & Co, ending in a 13-9 victory for ALOOO!!! Massive congratulations to Jake and Callum (pictured in the middle above) for their first win of the season.
  • Next came the battle at the top of the table between New Milton A and Old & Trafford. This was a match with quality players on both sides in the form of New Milton rising star Andy Tipsana and the experienced Gerard Redman facing off against former national player Simon Heaps and the quickly improving Jack Trafford. Old & Trafford had a tough match on their hands and managed to come through 11-8, game of the night going to Andy’s victory over Jack (8-11, 11-9, 9-11, 11-4, 11-5)
  • Also in the Premier division came the showdown between Merton and Parkstone in the middle of the table. Parkstone taking this by the comfortable margin 13-5.
  • MYT showed their growing strength in their 15-0 win over Grange B to take the top spot in the Championship!
  • Lastly came a positively staggering defeat of the Improvers by Howling Dragons! Howling Dragons taking the victory by a margin of 12 to 6 and working to close the gap at the top of the championship table.
