Summer League 2022

This year's Summer League has now concluded.

The 5pm division was won by Brutal Hedgehogs (Graham Evans and Zak Holbrook) with Woodcliffe Warriors (Bryce Wilson and Julie Thorn) taking second spot.

In the 7pm division Solent Heros (Alex Rorke and Ross Holme) took first place with Two Guys One Ball (Steve Gibbons and John Kerr) taking second place.

The play-off saw Two Guys One Ball take on Brutal Hedgehogs in one match and Solent Heros take on Woodcliffe Warriors in the other match.

Brutal Hedgehogs lived up to their name winning their match 4-1, only losing the doubles. Solent Heros had a more difficult time and after going 2-0 up they were pegged back to 2-2 with the match being decided by the doubles which they won to go through to the final.

The final was therefore between the two teams who finished top of their divisions, Brutal Hedgehogs and Solent Heros.

In the first match Graham took on Alex and although he lost a close 2nd end Alex won fairly comfortably. Zak fought back for Brutal Hedgehogs with a confident building win over Ross who just didn't get going. After losing the first end to a rejuvenated Ross, Graham took the next three ends to put Brutal Hedgehogs ahead 2-1. In the final singles Alex was pushed all the way by Zak finally winning the 4th end 13-11 to tie the match at 2-2.

Once again it was the doubles that would be the decider and it did not disappoint. Alex and Ross took a close 1st end 12-10 only to lose the next two 11-3 and 11-1. Solent Heros fought back hard in the 4th end to take it 11-9 taking the match to a 5th end. This end swung both ways but in the end it was Brutal Hedgehogs who took it 11-8 to give them the title.

Well done to all players who took part and made it such an enjoyable event.
