THREE GOLDS AND A SILVER AT THE KENT MASTERS

The first major tournament of the season saw our Sussex players continue to win medals. The Kent tournament is at the highest Gold level and attracted a lot of overseas players, particularly from The Netherlands.

Over 40s Mens Doubles

Chris Spice (Sussex) & partner Kenton Jones (Kent) won their group beating the No. 1 seeds on the way, whilst Phil Troke (Sussex) & his partner Paul Freeman (Kent) won their group beating the No. 2 seeds. This meant an all Sussex/Kent final pairing against each other. After a hard 3 set battle, Phil Troke & Paul Freeman beat Chris Spice & Kenton Jones, bringing both gold and silver medals home to Sussex (& of course Kent)

Over 50s Mixed doubles

The established pairing of Sara Foster (Sussex) & Simon Gilhooly (Essex) also won all their matches in their group – 3 of them going to 3 sets and also beating the No. 1 seeds on the way. The final proved more decisive and they won the gold medal in 2 sets.

Over 55 Ladies singles

Cathy Bargh (Sussex) maintained her excellent form in singles, winning all her matches in her group in 2 sets and bringing home another gold medal to add to her trophy cabinet.

Well done Chris, Phil, Sara and Cathy; Sussex is proud of you all.
