The Host club did enough to win the Horsham Spinners TTC Summer Team League Division 2 by a 11 massive points over runners-up Crawley Community.

Freddy Goodall of Spinners won the individual averages with an impressive 90.5% (19/21). Stuart Vincent, also of Spinners, was second with 88.9% (16/18).

It was a dominant display, as Spinners won five out of their six matches and the other three teams all only won two out of six each and were only separated by four points.

Horsham Spinners 8 Pingers 2

Pingers actually fielded a rather strong team in this match, with Neil Robinson, Tom Kinga and Matt Gore, but it wasn’t until game 6 that they registered a win.

Goodall started the match off with a 3-1 win over Gore, which was followed up by a 3-0 win for Vincent over Robinson and then an excellent 3-0 win for Adrian Harvey-Verenne over Kinga.

In round 2, Vincent defeated Gore comfortably 3-0, Goodall overcame Kinga 11-8 in the fifth and Harvey-Verenne lost a very close match 3-0 (12-10, 12-10, 11-9) to Robinson.

In the third round of fixtures, Vincent saw off Kinga 3-0, Harvey-Verenne overcame Gore 3-2 and Goodall beat Robinson 3-1. With the league already won, Goodall sat out of the doubles, which Vincent & Harvey-Verenne lost 3-0 to Gore & Robinson.

Warden Park 6 Crawley Community 4

Warden Park, represented by Ross Knowlson, Steve Ive and Ben Freeman, defeated eventual runners-up Crawley Community, who fielded regulars Liam Cuffe, Shane O’Brien and reserve Steve Lee.

Knowlson had a great night, getting a maximum, beating Cuffe 3-2 and the others 3-0. Ive and Freeman both beat Lee 3-0, but they both lost to both Cuffe and O’Brien, with three of these matches being 3-1 and the other (Cuffe vs Ive) being 3-0.

So it was 5-4 to Warden Park going into the doubles, which was a very close affair, won by WP (Knowlson & Ive) 11-9 in the fifth over CC (Cuffe & O’Brien).
