Fantastic performance at Ashcombe tournament for Reading Aces

Finally after a 3 year pause Reading Aces have returned to Ashcombe grass tournament taking place on the 26th of June. And this year we have our biggest representation ever: 1 NVL ladies team and 3 men teams.

Our ladies and Men 1 got first place! Our Men 2 and Men 3 went into the semi but lost closely so ended up sharing 3/4 which is still an incredible result. congratulations to all the teams!

Bring on Whitefield held between 22nd and 24th of July.

No win in the last game for our NVL ladies

Such a shame our NVL ladies couldn’t secure a win in their last game of the season against Sussex Dolphins to pull them out of the relegation zone. It was so painfully close 23-25, 25-21, 27-29. MVP Magdalena.

Now an anxious wait to see where they will end up in the league….
