Nov 2015 - HKFC Summer League Round-up

Once again the HKFC Summer Squash League gave section members looking to keep their fitness up and their eye in a chance to continue playing ‘competitive’ squash during the off-season.  With 8 teams of 6 entrants each, we also had a solid back-up pool of 50 players to cover the ever growing list of holidaying and injured players!

 

The regular league took place over 7 weeks and with regular movement in the top half of the table, it was eventually won by The Polar Bears convened by James Osmund.  In contrast, the bottom of the table was a lot more stable with The Black Mambas convened by Jon Pipe occupying the wooden spoon position for most (if not all!) of the summer!

 The championship play-off final was one to relish as The Polar Bears took on The Killer Whales.  With 5 of the 6 matches played The Killer Whales were leading in matches 3-2 and 12-10 in games, but this match was far from over as we saw the Ng brothers face-off for bragging rights.  Adrian Ng of The Polar Bears had to beat Henry Ng of The Killer Whales 3-0 to win the match outright, or 3-1 to result in a dead heat after games count back.  With Adrian 2-1 up, Henry looked to be in control as he managed to put a few points between himself and Adrian as they both chased the 4th game, giving Henry the opportunity to serve for the game and, with it, the overall match.  However Adrian used his experience and wisdom to battle back from game point down on multiple occasions and managed to pip Henry 3-1.

 

So, a dead heat after games count back and we turned back to the summer league table as the deciding factor with The Polar Bears emerging victorious.

 

The hotly contested plate playoff final saw The Blank Mambas squeeze a narrow victory over The Praying Mantis’, with Jon Pipe finally securing his first win of the Summer after 7 attempts.  Overall it ended 3 matches a-piece, with The Black Mambas winning 11-10 on games count back.
