BUCS News (22nd and 23rd February)

Well done to all of the CUTTC players who competed at this year’s BUCS Individual Championships in Nottingham.

We were represented by: Josh Bleakley, Wilson Chen, Nicholas Leung, Maitreyi Shivkumar, Anthony Sun, Bach Tran, Bella Wu, Jessie Zhang and Jessy Zhou.

Special mention must go to the achievements of Jessy Zhou, who was runner-up in the women’s singles event. She beat Emma Vickers (England #6) in the quarter-finals and Alice Loveridge (Guernsey #1) in the semi-finals. An impressive feat! The final was a closely fought match with the experienced Singaporean player Clara (Haiqing) Chau, who was representing Durham University.

Varsity News

Well done to the CUTTC men’s first team on securing another 10-0 victory in this year’s Varsity tie. The five man squad was made up of Nicholas Leung, Josh Bleakley, Anthony Sun (c), Qiu Chen and Wilson Chen. The closest games came from Josh’s singles matches, where he fought hard to gain the upper hand. The tally now goes up to eleven wins in a row, with a scoreline of 10-0 in the last five victories.

Our men’s second team encountered a particularly strong Oxford squad and lost out 6-4 in the end. This gives the Oxford second team their first win in eight years. Our squad consisted of Harry Ness, Martin Rohland, Hiroshi Kaneko and Bach Le Tran. Oxford’s top two players (Michael Peterer and Haijie Tan) were particularly strong, however we did manage to win both doubles games. Bach Le Tran and Martin Rohland put in an excellent performances to win a singles game each.

It was an emotional day for our women’s squad, with the sad news concerning the Malaysian Airways flight to Beijing having  personal significance for three of our players. Our heartfelt thoughts and sympathies go out to everyone at this time.

At the last minute Yingyan Jin stepped in for Jessy Zhou, and our squad consisted of Maitreyi Shivkumar (c), Jessie Zhang, Bella Wu and Yingyan. Our squad put in fine performances and the final score was 8-2 to Cambridge.
