League leaders Caddy Shack, located in Kathu, were up at home against Ting Tong Bar in last Thursday’s action, and taking into account their overall performance this season, any team facing them knows that playing against them will be a real challenge and that a spanking is very more than likely.

However, Ting Tong started off really well against the leaders with Nico and Johnny both winning their singles and doubles games.

As Mark from Caddy Shack mentioned, “It was like giving hope to the other teams in the league.”

Perhaps this was also somewhat of a wake-up call for the Caddy Shack team, as despite going two games down early in the match, from that moment on they took almost all other available points in the match.

Meanwhile, Red Light Bar played at home against Happy End Bar, and whereas France beat Belgium in the semi-final at the World Cup two weeks ago, in this game, which is a real battle between the two countries, Belgium got one over on France.

Happy End’s top player, Chris, who hails from Belgium, won both his singles and doubles games as did Andrew BD, who came to help Happy End as two of their regular players are still on holiday.

The beerleg was a three-setter and in the last set the black ball did not drop which caused Happy End to lose the beerleg but still walk away with a win 7-5 over Red Light.

Kiki Sports Bar played away to Simon & Oils, and Jack and Rocco playing for Kiki had a good evening winning their singles and doubles matches. Luke, a young and talented English player for Simon & Oils, won his singles and doubles too.

The beerleg was again a three-setter and was finally won by Simon & Oils. However, Kiki Sports Bar won the match with a 7-5 result.

Elsewhere, Martin Swiss played at home against Tommy and the lovely ladies from the Genius Bar team.

Martin won his singles and doubles games, as did his teammates Noi and Noun. However, the ever-popular Fern, who had done a great job the day before playing for the Patong Team in the Patong-Rawai Challenge 2018, and Polly, could not find any pockets and were on the end of a seven-ball in the doubles.

But the biggest miracle in this match was in the beerleg where Genius team struck back strongly and did not pot any black ball but still won in two sets. However, Martin Swiss won the match with a 7-5 result.

Last but not least, Wombat played at home against Kwans Birdie Team. Goh and Se from the Birdie Team won their singles and doubles games but so did Kob and Frank playing for Wombat.

Wombat had no intention of giving the match away and kept fighting till the end. The beerleg was a three-setter won by Kwans Birdie team. However, the final result was a 6-6 draw and that was the result both teams had to accept after a heavily-fought battle.

The ninth round of Patong Pool League will be played this coming Thursday (July 26) and anyone interested in playing as well as visitors are all welcome to attend one of the 11 participating bars. You can also visit their Patong Friendly Pool League Facebook page.
