Awards at OVSC

John Watkins and Edith Skelton, stalwarts of the Cricket Section (MOCC) and the Netball section resepctively, were the hugely deserving recipients of the Mundays Volunteer of the Year award and the Savills Long and Distiguished Service award at the OVSC AGM on Tuesday evening.

John has worked tirelessly to grow the colts section at MOCC over the last couple of years with fantastic results, while Edith has devoted time and energy for many years to ensure the netball section has grown and thrived. Both our well deserving heroes of OVSC are always the first to volunteer their time and energy and we thank them unreservedly. Neither the cricket section nor the netball section would be half as successful without them. John and Edith we salute you!

World Racketlon Victory for Richard Middleton

World Racketlon Champion

In what has been described as the “most dramatic win of the tournament”, squash club member Richard Middleton won the Racketlon World Championship for the 50+ held in Germany at the end of November.

Richard who was seeded number 2 played the top seed, Germany’s, Thomas Knaack in the final.  In a hotly contested competition which sees players competing against each other at Tennis, squash, badminton and table tennis, Richard won the table tennis 25-23.  The German then won the badminton with Richard comfortably winning the squash.  On paper, Richard was probably the better tennis player, however, he quickly found himself 13-5 down.  He continued to fight and with the score at 18-18, Richard won the next point to take the Victory!

Well done to Richard!

Mini Red Superstars!

Oxshott Tennis Club’s U8 Mini Red Tennis Team were crowned the Surrey Aegon ‘Team of the Year’ for 2016 and collected their awards at the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club last week.

Chosen out of 78 teams in their age group across Surrey for their superb 91.7% games winning percentage, the talented team enjoyed an exclusive tour of Wimbledon after they had received their awards from Dan Bloxham, the Head Tennis Coach at the AELTC.

James Starr, Head Coach of Oxshott Tennis Club who are based at Oxshott Village Sports Club, was delighted to be able to accompany the children who were thrilled to be treated to such sights as the Media Centre and hallowed turf of Centre Court.

“The U8’s played out of their skin this summer,” commented Starr, “and thoroughly deserved this recognition of their hard work and exemplary gamesmanship they showed throughout the season.   I’ve already heard them planning a repeat performance for next year!”
