Although Bromley’s effervescent, Chris Bartram, claimed most titles, our players succeeded in winning five of their own. They were:
Jas Ould – Ladies Singles, Ladies Under 21’s Singles and Ladies Doubles
Roger Pingram – Veterans Over 60’s
Mark Romano – Men’s Doubles
Heidi Smith – Ladies Doubles
In addition to this, Heidi was runner up in the Mixed Doubles with our very own, John Burleton, and the Ladies Singles Plate. John, who was playing his first County Championships for a long while, was also runner up in the Men’s Veterans Singles. Sue Sullivan also chipped in with a runner up medal in the Ladies Doubles.
Not far behind Jas Ould’s fine performance was Roger Pingram, who, during the day, had big wins against Simon Dilkes (Bromley), Simon Forrest (Medway) and Richard Beckham (Medway). Petar Tancevski from Weald TTC also got in on the giant killing scene with an impressive win over Bromey star Joe Kennedy.
To say it was a long would be an understatement but all in all I’m sure our players now think it was well worth the effort. Well done to those that won medals and also to those that made sure West Kent was well represented.
