There are 4 spaces remaining, for beginners and improvers. The coaches are particularly keen to welcome beginners of 8 years old and under, with 3 spaces available. Enquires to Tony on hooper@dircon.co.uk

Anna Hooper won the plate competition at the Kent Closed tournament on Sunday 21 September. Having lost her first match, Anna went on to win her next 3 matches in the Girls U15 competition. She has also been selected for the Girls U15 County squad and is currently playing at No4.

Another great effort from the junior section of the club, well done Anna!

Boddington Trophy 2014

Poultwood Juniors finished runners up in the Boddington Trophy B competition at Rodmersham on Saturday. The team comprising of Oliver Briggs, Henry Johnson, Anna Hooper and James Johnson enjoyed a clean sweep of wins in the divisional competition and only narrowly lost out to Maidstone in the final on count back (having drawn 2-2 in the final but conceding more games to the opposition).
