Nampol Registers First Win in the Tennis League

In the two matches played last weekend in the NTA inter-club tennis challenge, Nampol tennis club recorded their maiden win in the league – defeating at 3rd placed CTCA 3 – 2.

Nampol picked up 15 valuable points after their singles players won both their matches with Micha Hartmann beating CTC “A”‘s Eno Akpabio 61 63 while No 2 singles player Hennie Bergh got the better of Melissa Khupe 62 64.

CTC “A” had to play Khupe, a female player, after top player Kallie Heese pulled out from the tie with an injured elbow.

In the doubles, Hartmann combined with Berg to beat the combination of CTC “A”‘ s Colin Nyandoro and Patrick Paulus 62 63. CTC “A”‘s two wins came in the matches where the Nyandoroaulus combination saw off Nampol’s veterans Jack Dempsey and Karl Hartmann 36 63 76 (103).

Despite showing some good double’s play, the experienced pair also lost to the KhupeAkpabio combination 36 46. The final score for the Nampol CTC A tie was 15-5 in favour of Nampol.

In other action, CTC C overcame CTC-OTB 3 – 2, and 15 points to 5 that saw Walter Kamukono beat CTC-OTB’s Peter Brinkmann 63 63 and CTC C’s David Impinge coming out tops against CTC-OTB’s Greg Chase 61 75 in the singles.

In the doubles, Brinkmann and Chase teamed up to beat CTC C’s Lawrence Kahindi and Masoka Mabhena 62 63.

The KamukonoIpinge combination defeated the CTC-OTB team of Bas Rijnen and Dirk Stein 64 64. Rijnen and Stein had earlier cruised past CTC C’s Kahindi and Mabhena 75 26 76 (103).

That match made the overall score for the CTC CCTC-OTB tie 15-5 in favour of CTC C. The other three teams in the league did not play as SKW had a bye and the CTC BUNAM encounter could not be played after Unam was not able to field a team.

The 2014 interclub championship will be decided after the two last outstanding rounds of November 15 and November 22.
