NFRBA Teams Played in both
Junior and Senior Inter-Regional Tournament


NFRBA Junior Team

It’s a shame that we now have just 4 regions taking part in the event. Following withdrawals of other regions we entered two U19 teams to make the entries up to 4 in that age-group. In fact Tunbridge Wells would also have entered 2 teams except that they wished to get an early end of play due to the need to travel to the ICT event.
Our first team of Ethan Solly, Harry Hodges, Christopher Liu, Georgina Walden, Alyssa Chin and Amy Sanders came very close to beating the strong Tunbridge Wells team – the match between Ethan and Rory Easton was really great to watch. They came out on top in their other 2 ties so ended second overall.
Our second U19 team were up against some really strong opposition but there were some close games. The squad was Andrew Binnie, James Dethier, Jude Fendt, Georgia Debling, Georgina Turner and Annabelle Hillary.

In the U15 group we were again up against a strong Tunbridge Wells team but we did win our encounter with Medway so ended 3rd in the table. Our team was Callum Chow, Ben Deery, Ryan Holmes, Abby Girling, Melissa Mundy and Hannah Williams.

Thanks to team manager Linda.

NFRBA Senior Team

Following our promotion last year our prime aim was to stay in division 1. We achieved this with a win over Ravensbourne. Orpington/NWK were just too strong and easily regained the trophy they lost last season.Our team was Alex Skilton, Mike Barham, Alistair Mannings, Tom Gill-Pratt, Vicki Sutton, Lesley Uphill, Lesley Darlington, Gemma Hill and Sarah Vine.

Thanks to team manager Lesley D.

CAN YOU HELP
Hartsdown Juniors
?

The Hartsdown Juniors really need extra adult helpers, coach qualified or not as Nick Munnich is frequently on his own and therefore unable to maximise his time coaching.
Hartsdown Juniors play on Saturdays at Hartsdown Sports Centre from 2 - 4pm. Helpers need to be volunteers as there is no profit from the subs. The club restarts from its summer break on Saturday 9th September 2017.

If you can help please contact Nick Munnich
email: nmunnich@tiscali.co.uk
