COMPETITIONS

Winter League

Excellent run since Xmas meant a P10, W5, D4, L1 Pts 14 +10 set diff record, which secures a promotion spot for the Men's 1's. The elevation next year to Div 2 will be the highest the club has competed at for many years! My thanks to all who played this year: Dominic Nash, Matt Rogers, Roger Challis, Matt Last and Ewan Threadkell. Special mention to Matt Rogers who leaves us and Suffolk for the sunnier, but potentially damper lands of Devon, good luck!

Men's 2s unfortunately finished 4th though could have ended up another promotion had they managed to play their final two games of the season! Either way a competitive season for them with 14 year old Ewan making the step up to this level for the first time and certainly held is own with him and myself having a 70% set win rate as a pair.

Men's 3s first season as a team was promising and certainly we're competitive with their first win as a team and plenty of draws throughout the season. Sure Graham, Paul, David and Andrew will come back even stronger next season.

Impressive Winter 2019/20 campaign for the Ladies with an unbeaten season which see's them top division 3 and secure promotion. Mixed team end up in 5th but only 4 points separates top and bottom therefore could easily be a different story had a scraped another win or two.

Summer League

Sensational summer season for Saxmundham's Ipswich league teams with three out of the four teams gaining promotion and the Men's and Ladies 1st winning their leagues. Men's 1 finished top of Div 5 with a 7-1 record and the 2nd best set win % in all of the seven Men's divisions, whilst the inaugural season in Div 7 for Men's 2 resulted in two wins and some valuable matchplay experience for some of our younger upcoming talent. The Ladies topped Div 4 in a tight battle with Felixstowe and the Mixed claimed 2nd spot in Div 5 just pipping Adastral Park.
