The Heacham League started on Monday 4th September with the 2 player league where all 8 teams played two matches each on the night in Heacham Public Hall. My usual setting up helpers Mike Nobes and Mick Minns were in the hall setting up at 6.15pm and it was great to see other league players starting to turn up between 6.30 and 6.45pm to lend a hand and as a result we were all set up by 6.45pm. So plenty of time for a warm up before the start at 7.30pm. As everyone was there in good time play got underway by 7.15pm. The format was the same as last season, each team has two players and they play two singles plus a doubles in each match. All games were three ends with a point allocated for each end won, played up to 11 with no two clear points if the score reaches 10-10 it is sudden death as next point wins the end. Teams can have the same two players for both matches during the evening or can change players for the second match. Also as we are trying to get youngsters involved a team can bring in a youngster or inexperienced player for the doubles to give them an insight into match play. In fact this happened with Spivs Specials who had Jim Race and Stephen Jackson playing in both matches but they brought in Stephen's 14 year old son Aaron to play in the doubles along side Jim. While on the subject of youngsters playing another young player just starting out this season was 10 year old Alfie Yarrow who went straight into the deep end when he played both Hunnys Heroes matches alongside brother Tom. Although Alfie did not win an end he got close and comments of what a good forehand echoed around the hall plus brother Tom finished the night top of the averages. Except for one match which ended up 15-0 most of the matches either finished up 9-6 or 8-7. At the end of the session it was BT Victories Steve Hales and Mary-Ann Woodhouse who finished in first place with 23 points out of a possible 30, then there were three teams sharing second place on 16 points. So the first night went really well and I would finally like to thank those who stopped after the matches to help clear up and we were all done and dusted by 9.30pm. Next week we start of the normal league fixtures plus our new friendly league fixture each week. This friendly match goes ahead if the team who would normally have a free week would like to play a friendly match against a team of Super Subs or any spare league player. Next week it is Ringstead  who are playing in Heacham Hall against a Super Sub team made up of young Alfie Yarrow, back after a season out with knee problems we welcome back Debbie Peel and they are lead by our very own Super Sub Eileen Needham.

To play in the Heacham League all you need to do is be TTE registered. If any player is looking for a game please get in touch. Once again we are looking for 'Super Subs'. So what is a Super Sub? They are players who play in other TTE affiliated leagues but would like an extra match or two or more during the season. There is no cost to be a Super Sub as long as you are TTE registered. There is no commitment on your part, if a team is short of a player they will have a list of Super Subs and contact details. They will contact you asking if you can help out and it is your choice to say if you are available or not.
