Weald, Darenth and Horsham Spinners were the winners of the National Cadet League at Horsham.

Division 1

For 1st place, it was a formality for Weald (Arthur Bracken, Tom Down & Shem Lejarde) to take this with ease, although not having it as easy on Day 4, as they had the other days.

They finished on 102 points, 27 points ahead of second placed Horsham Spinners B (Zach Hodges, Sam Watts & Ed Cozens).

Top of the averages was Alejandro Ito-Aramendia of South Croydon, with 9/10 wins, seven of these going to five sets (including his only loss to Hodges).

Division 2

This was won by Darenth A, who had also won the Division 2 on Day 1, with the same team of Ben Jakes, Eddie Gillhouley and George Lipscombe. Ben topped the averages with an impressive 10/10, beating the next best player, Adit Gandhi of Guildford A, who won 9/10, by 3-2.

Brighton City B & C had the same number of points, but the B team (Joe Milne, Rio Alvarez & Daniel Blyth) finished 2nd, as they beat the C team 4-2.

Guildford A & Rosehill also had the same points, but they had a draw. It went to games difference, but as they both won 11 games in the match between the two teams, it had to go to points difference – and Rosehill won by 10 points and therefore finished fourth.

Division 3

Horsham Spinners C (Pisti Olexa, Charlie Jannels & Dylan Ward) dominated Division 3 on Day 4. The team had also won the division on Day 1, but with a totally different line-up, as a few players were unavailable on Day 4.

Pisti only conceded one end all day and even more impressively Charlie, who celebrated his 10th birthday three days before NCL Day 4 and is therefore one of the youngest players in the NCL, won all of his 10 matches 3-0!

Dylan got seven wins, losing two matches in the fifth set. Graham Spicer B (Bertie Stanley-Hughes, Oliver Cheung & Lucy Adams) held off the two Brighton City teams by one point, to take second place.
