The August league has been finalized with the following results. The Mens A, who played 3 sections above that of last year thanks to ex-Sandton A, came second in an extremely closely contested 2.1 section. The Mens B, playing where the A team had last year, came a close 3rd – all matches won or loss by a small margin. The Mens C struggled in a very strong section which was only 1 below the B team and didn’t manage to win a match. The D team, featuring the youngest player in the Pirates Mens teams (Johan Gouws – Grade 7) and the oldest player in the Pirates Mens teams (Hector Kingswill – Grade 7 +++) came 2nd in their league.
Both ladies teams found competition to be disappointingly weak. The ladies A team won all 4 of their matches, barely dropping games, winning 31 of the 32 sets played. They came 1st in section 2.2. The ladies B team came second in section 2.3 as unfortunately they started shakily and lost their 1st match before getting into a winning groove.
