Following week 21 action played last Thursday (Oct 11), Caddy Shack lead Natalie Bar by six points and on paper are favourites to take this season’s title.

Meanwhile, Natalie Bar played away to Kiki Sports Bar and after only managing to secure a draw in their game with Simon & Oil’s the day before were looking to up their game a move closer to table toppers Caddy Shack.

It was the birthday Andrew B. D. player from Natalie Bar but besides a cake Kiki did not have any other presents to give away.

William, Jack and Mac playing for Kiki won their singles and doubles games as did Natalie and Andrew from Natalie Bar. Kiki won the beerleg in two sets and the finale score was 7-4 in favor of Kiki thus reducing Natalie’s chances of winning the PPL league this season.

Elsewhere, Wombat played away to Happy End and Wombat were well prepared with Wayne, Stu, Azza and Frank all winning their singles and doubles games.

Happy End’s captain Jerry won his singles and double games s well and his team managed to win the beerleg. However, it was not enough and Wombat walked away with a 4- 8 win.

Martin Swiss played away at Red Light and Tony from Red Light won his singles and doubles games while Martin and Kid did the same for their team. It was a close game and the beerleg was a three-setter won by Martin Swiss, who also won the match 7-5.

Finally, Genius played at home against Ting Tong and Nick and Peter playing for Ting Tong won their singles and doubles games while Jenny and Tommy playing for Genius did the same. It all came down to the beerleg which was won in three sets by Ting Tong but the finale result was a 6-6 draw.
