Orpington Secure Record Win
Orpington Men’s first team recorded a dominant win at home to Trottiscliffe on the weekend, all but securing promotion in the process. Orpington sit at the top of the division after the team’s fourth win in as many matches. The regular team of ex-pro Jason Barnett, A1 managing director Gary Lewis, Kris Kroll and Chris Reid know that a positive result in their final match against Tonbridge 1’s will put them into the divisional play-off, as well as promoting them for next season.
The pairing of Jason Barnett and Gary Lewis were untroubled throughout their two rubbers against Trottiscliffe, breezing through 4 sets without dropping a game. Particular highlights were Jason having to react to a net-cord by playing a shot through his legs, and Gary playing some inch perfect drop shots from the back of the court. Kris Kroll and Chris Reid were equally comfortable, with their steady baseline play, and only dropped one game in their matches.
An impressive win for Orpington first team sets them up nicely for the final match, with a likely divisional play off to cap a strong winter showing.« Back to News
