Penmoor vs Devizes B

This past week Penmoor welcomed Devizes B.

Devizes B were let down by 2nd pairing player who never turn’t up and made it difficult with both pairings having to continually playing game after game.

First pairing Kieran & Vernon were the only guys who lost after a poor start from Vernon they made it to 1-1 where they were clearly on top but unfortunately another bad turn from both players meant they lost 1-2.

John & Mark were made to work for wins with 2-1 win & 2-0.

Adam & Cameron were also made to work for Wins with 2-1 & 2-0.

Kieran & Vernon finished there night with a 2-0 win in a highly spirited game vs 1st pairing from Devizes.

We would like to say thank you for a highly spirited night from Devizes who will be asking what happened to their second pair player.

Penmoor vs Corsham – mens

Penmoor welcomed a tough test with Corsham who were above them and have been since the first game of the season.

A toughly faught contest between both sides ended up going into the last game between A pairing of Penmoors vs 1st pairing of Corsham.

The game was quickly 1-0 down for Penmoor but they came out fighting with some great shots and positional play. However a moment of unsportsman like conduct threw the match into disrupt as corsham tried to take a point even though clearly violating a rule by reaching over the net to finish off a shot.
Words were exchanged but was resolved until the next point were a clear lack of respect took place by a corsham member who was found to be bringing the game into clear disrupt after swearing under his breathe but was clearly heard by club captain.

Further words were exchanged with the clear outline of if any more swearing (under breathe, towards opponents or own team member) would lead to Penmoor walking off the court and taking the points.

Match continued but clearly Corsham were unhappy at being caught & pulled up on cheating however the match ended with Corsham winning the final game 2-0 and taking the match 4-5.

Unfortunately because the unsportsman like conduct occured we will be following up with the league as we do not take kindly to the arrogant remarks that took place.

Penmoor vs Mid Wilts Ladies

Penmoor went into the game being behind Mid Wilts Ladies and requiring a win.

The teams of:

Kieran & Will
Vernon & John N
John & Chris M

Were said to be upto the challenge but it wasnt as easy as some thought!

Mid Wilts took 1st pairing of Kieran & Will be surprise with a 11-21 win in the first leg which meant one thing; Play to Win with NO MERCY. After that shaky start Kieran & Will won 2-1, 2-0 & 2-0.

John & Chris also suffered a kick in reality with another leg drop with the same pairing but once again came back to win 2-1, 2-0 & 2-0.

Vernon & John N seemed to cruise their games with 2-0, 2-0 & 2-0; however looking over the score cards a few games could have gone either way.

However in the end a great win for Penmoor 9-0 but one spoil sport from MW Ladies had too much to say and caused Abit of un-sportsman like conduct after saracastic comments during the game & to further insult Penmoor a complaint at being smashed against.

However we still like to wish them the best for the season and look forward to the next game in 2014
