Where has the summer gone? And so we start a new season with plenty of strength and depth in the Club, it should be a good battle this year. There will be new challenges for our Wycombe Ladies team as they move up a division and similarly for the Chalfont Mixed.

The Club calendar is already filling up and fixture dates and info has been added for matches up to Christmas. As soon as full dates are available the remaining fixutres will be added.

End of Season Ups and Downs

Different fortunes this season. After the success of last season for our men's teams, it was always going to be a bit of a challenge playing in higher divisions. Our guys put up a great effort but it proved a tough season which saw both men's teams towards the bottom of their divisions. Similarly Wycombe Mixed were up against a more challenging opposition but it proved a great leveller and bodes well for next season.  Chalfont Mixed had a really great season finishing top of their division, with a more consistent team playing it proved a brilliant combination, next season will be the challenge now!

It was our Ladies team, however, were the real stars of the season. For the first time in the club's history, our ladies played their hearts out and managed to not only secure top of the division but managed to do it with only one loss and one draw. Well done ladies! Big thanks to Hannah for organising, but also to Serena, Katie, Helen, Jen, Anika and Anna who played brilliantly throughout all their matches, always maintaining good sportmanship and honest play.

Awards to be distributed at the club's AGM - look forward to seeing you there (club members only).
