Stuart Kirby rented a seven seater Citroen and headed off to Sherbourne in Dorset for the weekend with Dean Ali, Vishal Singh, AR, Kais Mahmood, Callum Yates and Denis Bazylijski. Vishal, Dean, Callum and Raheem won their first games but lost their second putting them out of the competition. Raheem's second game against Scott of Alleyn's was very close losing 15 - 10. Meanwhile, Denis and Kais lost their first round matches and entered the plate where Kais won three games in his pool but had a disastrous game against Nugent losing 15 - 1 with seven foul serves! This put him in third place and so he did not progress to the knockout.
In the U18 doubles, Vishal and Dean lost their first round match against Tonbridge 11 - 1, 11 - 5 and then progressed into the plate where they won the single pool to become plate winners. The final game was the hardest against St. Paul's II winning 15 -11. Dean played well and Vishal was much improved with consistent attacking shots. In the U16s, Raheem and Kais won their first round against St. Paul's III, 11 - 7, 11 - 9 but then lost to Alleyn's in their second match 11 - 8, 11 - 6. Callum and Denis lost their first round to St. Paul's II and continued into the plate. Denis's style was slightly cramped by having been bitten by a horse while walking through the village! - thankfully some extra padding saved the day.
The weekend was marked by a pleasant meal in the Wincanton Tandoori.
