Varsity News

It was another great result for Cambridge at this year’s Varsity match. The event was hosted for the first time at the University of Cambridge Sports Centre, which provided an excellent venue for an enthralling contest.

Our Cambridge women started proceedings with a dominant performance, comfortably beating Oxford 10-0. Nearly all of the matches were won without conceding a single game.

As usual, the men’s second team encounter was a very close affair, finishing in another 5-5 draw. Many of the matches could have gone either way. Hampton Tao’s strong performances proved to be critical for Cambridge. He won all of his matches, including his doubles with Juan Antonio Rubio-Lara. In the other doubles match Cambridge’s second team captain Martin Rohland combined extremely well with Michael Lu to secure a valuable 3-0 win.

With the departure of three of our first team members, including top player Nicholas Leung, the Cambridge men’s squad faced a daunting challenge in extending our unprecedented run of eleven Varsity victories. Fortunately our team rose to the occasion, with key players putting in gutsy performances to achieve a 7-3 victory. Particular credit must go to Joshua Bleakley and Wilson Chen, both of whom were unbeaten in their singles matches. They also repeated their doubles success of last year, with another impressive victory, this time over Oxford’s top two players. Credit must also go to captain Harry Ness who played in a determined fashion throughout. He beat Oxford’s Maciej Jarocki 3-2 and narrowly lost to Dai Xi 3-1, with the last two games going to deuce, 10-12. Harry then combined with his regular doubles partner from Queens’ college, Ben Farrar. This established pairing won their match 3-1.

Many thanks to all those who came along to support our players. We would also like to thank Table Tennis England umpires Mike & Lilian Payne and Brian Freer.
