THE Sonning Common and Peppard B side have made a good start to their Reading and District League Division 1 campaign after gaining a point from their opening match at Our Lady of Peace B with Nigel Maltby and Jeremy Willis both winning twice.
An 8-2 loss to a strong Tidmarsh A side followed with Maltby just managing a narrow 11-6, 8-11, 11-5, 8-11, 12-10 victory over Lee Calcutt.
The A team lost their opening match at championship-chasing Kingfisher A, Keith Swain and Jason Roberts with singles.
In Division 2 the C team have started well by drawing both their opening fixtures against Tidmarsh C and Wokingham B — Danny Dockree and Matt Stone performing well along with Jon Abbott.
The promoted D side have found the step up to Division 3 tough but a fine Alan Mollett treble gave them a point from their match with Sonning Sports A.
