Opening Match 2012/2013 Season

The Racketball team had a tough opening match of the winter season against a Priory 1st team who have been title contenders for the last few seasons. We were however boosted by having a very strong team of 1.Danny O'Hara, 2.Howard Lancashire 3.Pete Ross and 4.Luke Kirkham.

Luke got off to a winning start with a fairly comfortable 3-0 win, despite making a few too many unforced errors. Danny opted to go on next and against a tough opponent in Anil Ram he managed to play steady, sharp Racketball and also ran out 3-0 winner. Next two on court were Howard and Pete, Howard coming up against a talented junior in the shape of Oliver Palmer. Howard struggled to find his rhythm in the first and lost it 11-7, However he worked his opponent hard and seemed to get more comfortable with each game, eventually running out 3-1 winner.

Pete kept his unbeaten record going against a tough opponent who hits every shot at 100MPH. Pete lost the first 11-2 and seemingly was struggling with the pace of the game, however he started to get use to the pace and lost the second narrowly, but his opponent started to tire and Pete stated getting more into it, he eventually ran out 3-2 winner.

A great result for the team winning 14-3 and lets hops the form continues for the rest of the season.

2nd Team Mid. Season Report 2011-2012.

Though we are in division 3, the standard of the Racketball Leagues has risen quite significantly over the past few years. Therefore we are not anticipating any major success this season, but are trying to enjoy the games and aiming to finish as high as possible in the league. We have struggled on times to get a team together, though the guys that have played have always done so with great enthusiasm and 100% effort. Apart from a couple of teams the majority are fairly evenly matched, and so hopefully we will continue to pick up valuable points in the second half of the season.

I must also thank Alf for his support so far this season, as co-operation between the first and second team has been essential in order to find players often at short notice. It would be very encouraging to see "new" racketball players showing an interest in playing for the team, as this would make life so much easier when finding players to play each week, and also maybe get "the ball rolling" in terms of general racketball participation within the club. Our home matches are on a Tuesday night, and everyone is very welcome to come and support the team!
