NewsTeddington Rugby club has been named Rugby World Magazine’s British and European Team of the Year, putting the club firmly on the Rugby map.

The team completed a 30-match unbeaten streak and Club Chairman Gareth Cross believes winning that the award is fitting end to an extraordinary season and a tribute to the hard work that the team, coach and captain have all put in over the last two years. They will move into the London Division Three South West next season (for the first time in their history) and are on the lookout for players to strengthen their offering against their new opponents.

Teddington Cricket Club’s ECB National Club Championship Campaign continued on with a win at Sussex club Billingshurst. Their opponents won the toss, but struggled against the Teddington attack, reaching only 147 before they were all out in the penultimate over.

Teddington’s batsmen, however, were in more punishing mood. An opening partnership of 99 between Max Page and Nish Patel set them on course for victory and despite a mini-collapse, victory was secured by 5 wickets with 19 overs to spare. Teddington will face a tougher task against Horsham in the next round, although they will have home advantage on June 27th, so would welcome your support.

Teddington Swimming Club has a new head coach, double-Olympian Ed Sinclair. He has ambitious plans for the local club that he hopes will see rival other big London names whilst also ensuring that the team continues to enjoy their time in the water.

The squad is already represented in the national youth finals and Ed is hoping to add to this list and ultimately send athletes into the national team.
