Both Kwans Birdie Club and Natalie Bar got within reach of Caddy Shack following wins in round nine of the Patong Pool League, sponsored by Thailand Pool Tables, Genius 2 Garden and Restaurant and Tualek Whisky, played last Thursday (July 26).

Natalie Bar, who were some 12 points off the league leaders after week eight of the league, managed to get within three points of Caddy Shack following a big 9-3 away win over Simon & Oil's.

Natalie Bar started the game strong with Andy, Peter, Natalie and Napoli were all winning their singles and doubles games.

Simon & Oil's struggled to find answers against last year’s runners-up and even lost the beerleg in three sets giving Natalie Bar had a comfortable 9-3 victory.

Kwans Birdie Team were playing away to Ting Tong Bar and Mike, Mike E and Se from the Birdie Team all won their singles and doubles games. However, so did Nic and Ian playing for Ting Tong bar.

It was a closely-fought match throughout the singles, but in the doubles Kwans Birdie Team took the lead and won the beerleg in two sets and the game with a score of 7-4.

Meanwhile, lower down the table, Red Light Bar played away to Kiki Sports Bar and it was an all-French affair with both bar owners hailing from the Republic.

Kiki’s star player William was back in action and he made his point by winning his singles and doubles games, but Kiki himself also won both games. For Red Light, Oye and Andy won both their singles and doubles games meaning the game was to be decided in the beerleg, which ended up being a three-setter won by Kiki Sports Bar.

However, both teams had to be happy with a 6-6 at the end of the night.

Elsewhere, Happy End Bar played home to Martin Swiss with Teacher Tak, Andy, Oye and Andy 2 all winning their singles and doubles games for Happy End.

Happy End had a comfortable 7-2 lead ahead of the beerleg and what could go wrong?

Martin Swiss was not willing to walk away without winning the beerleg, and Happy End didn’t have such a ‘happy end’ as they lost the beerleg in two sets. However, Happy End still walked away with a 7-4 win.

Last but by no means least, Genius played at home against Wombat with the ladies from Genius suffering slightly after having a late night battling in the Patong-Rawai Challenge the day before.

However, Nong Fern recovered miraculously and won her singles and doubles games as did Ken, both playing for the Genius team. Frank playing for Wombat won his singles and doubles too.

The beerleg was again a three-setter, which was eventually won by Genius giving them a good 8-4 win over their opponents.

The tenth round of the PPL will be played on Thursday (Aug 2) and people interesting in playing as well as visitors are all welcome to attend one of the 11 partcipating bars. You can also keep up to date with what’s happening in the league via their Patong Friendly Pool League Facebook page.
