British League results - GSTTC Teams
Senior Womens Team
After the first weekend the ladies were in 2nd last place so had to perform better for the 2nd weekend to have any chance of remaining in the Division 3 following their promotion the previous year.  Things did not go according to plan as our top 2 ranked players were not available and the rules only provide for the replacement player to be 'lower' ranked nationally.  The team did not survive and were relegated to Div 4.  The team was represented by Michelle McGovern (replaced by Medha Verma), Janice Lee, Lute Durham and Captain Kumiko.

Veteran Mens Teams

Graham Spicer British League 2018
Team 1 played in Div 3A and were represented (in National ranking order) by Mats Johansson, Steve Duggan, and Tim Waller.  They ended weekend 1 in 4th place out of 6, then ended the final weekend in the same position thus retaining their place in the Division.  Averages were Mats 45%, Steve 40%, Tim 35%.  Good result given the overall strength of individual players in the Division. Team 2 played in Division 4A having been relegated from Div 3 the previous year.  Players representing the Club (in National ranking order) were Tony Needham, Jeremy Wu, and Jin Luo.  Good news here - the team finished in top position out of 8, 2 points clear of the next team and are promoted back to Div 3.  A superb team effort with Jin having a marvelous competition.  Averages were Jin 85%, Tony 60%, Jeremy 50%
