Day 1 vs Shropshire

Wendy and Sue were first on playing the singles matches, followed by Claire and Lynne playing the first round doubles match. We got off to a flying start winning all of them.  It continued in the second round, where Claire and Fiona and Sue and Wendy, all managed to win taking the day to 5-0 to Hampshire. 

Day 2 vs Berkshire 

Day 2 was a windy and frustrating day, with some close matches.  Sue and Wendy played singles and Claire and Fiona played 2 doubles and finally Lynne came in and played the final match with Wendy.  We were unable to win any of them, so final result 5-0 to Berkshire. 

Day 3 vs Buckinghamshire. 

After a late start due to rain, Fiona and Sue went onto play the singles, both of which managed to win 10-8 in the third set tie break.  This was followed up by a quick win the doubles by Claire and Wendy giving Hampshire the 3 rubbers they needed to win the tie, and come 2nd in our Division. 

A great weekend was has by all, with some great tennis and personal achievements.
