Group Summary:

There was fantastic commitment from this group where everyone played at least five or 6 matches, almost everyone got their bonus points and almost every match came with a really generous commentary which were a pleasure to read! Well done and many thanks. Catalin takes the gold winning six matches without dropping a set, so promotion definitely beckons. Sion was also on fine form and finishes runner up. Do hope we can expand this league and get everyone even closer matches.
