Rackets – Winter Season Team Round-Up

Dec 11, 2017 | James Temple

With the last matches before Christmas being played over the next few weeks, here’s a round-up of how our teams have fared in the first half of the season:



The defence of the division 1 title has begun promisingly for the men’s tennis A team. Five wins out of five have put them in second place with four games in hand. The current league leaders are our B team. Although they’ve played almost double the number of matches, they’ve set themselves up to finish their first season in division 1 with a comfortable league position.

The mixed A team have made a similarly strong start. Seven consecutive wins see them top of division 1 with only three matches to play. The B team, also in division 1, face a battle to stay up with David Lloyd and Sampford Peverell.

Another team with a 100% record is Chris Goodwill’s mixed C team. Having only played three matches, they find themselves in a good position to mount a promotion push after Christmas.

The ladies’ A team have had a difficult season in a strong division 1. It’s been great to see Millie Agutter, aged only 14, become a regular player. In division 3, the ladies’ B team are currently second with three games to play.



Another title defence which has started well sees the squash first team currently second, behind Devon and Exeter, in the Premier Division. With an 11-point deficit to make up, they travel to Newton Abbot next Tuesday before they resume in the New Year. They have also progressed to the semi-final of the Devon Cup where they’ll face Crediton.

The second team are eighth in a very congested division 1, with only 14 points separating them from third. The third and fourth teams are both mid-table in division 3 with similar records so far. The fifth team are also in mid-table, in division 4.

The ladies’ squash team are currently sixth but are not far behind Newton Abbot in third.



The racketball first team are second in division 1, behind Devon and Exeter. With only five points between them, it promises to be an interesting second half of the season. They also start the National Club Championships this week, traveling to Winchester on Thursday evening before resuming the Devon Cup in February with a semi-final against Paignton.

The second team are fourth in division 2, aiming to repeat or better their highest ever finish of second in 2014.

The ladies’ racketball team have had a tough start to the season and currently sit eighth.
