Saints pro­mo­tion caps off an ace sea­son


Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - SPORT -

CHAL­FONT St Peter Ten­nis Club’s first and sec­ond teams both re­mained un­beaten in win­ning their Bucks Vets Win­ter Leagues to gain pro­mo­tion to Leagues Three and Five re­spec­tively

The first team had an in­ter­na­tional feel, with French­man Guil­laume Martin bring­ing the Gal­lic flair, while South African Alan Recht­man pro­vided some con­sis­tency.

Nick Trigg used his power shots to great ef­fect while Nigel Or­lans prowled at the net and, with cap­tain Kevin Popely com­bin­ing a power serve with an all-court aware­ness, the team won five and drew one of their six matches.

Pete Fisher, Char­lie Phelps, Neil McCluskey, Mike Baker, Mike Bird and Gra­ham Thomas not only chalked up a sim­i­lar suc­cess for the sec­ond team, win­ning three games and drawing two, but also as­sisted the first team when play­ers were un­avail­able.

The club is wel­com­ing new play­ers at a dis­counted rate for the forth­com­ing sea­son, with £99 for new adult membership.

GO­ING UP: Guil­laume Martin, Nigel Or­lans, Kevin Popely (cap­tain), Alan Recht­man and Nick Trigg
