Hampshire & I.O.W
Our opening match, held at West Bridgford Tennis Club, resulted in a four rubbers to love loss (one set to eight) Rosie and Jackie took a 7-5 set off the second couple. Overall this first match was the hardest. This team will have won the league having fielded a team which included at least one GB international.
Once again we had a home match at West Bridgford Tennis Club. The result this time was a three one loss (two sets to six) with Rosie and Jackie taking their second rubber. Pat and Sue Dexter came close to winning a set but unfortunately lost a close tie break.
Away to play at the East Gloucs. Club. This was our closest game by far. The match finished two rubbers all, five sets all but we lost on a forty to thirty seven games count up. So near yet so far!
Away at Halton, Aylesbury and another three rubbers to one loss (two sets to six) with Rosie and Jackie once again taking their second rubber.
Home at West Bridgford again. Another three rubbers to one loss (three sets to six) Rosie and Jackie once again took the three sets and were unfortunate to have lost a tie break.
These matches were all quite hard but there was some good tennis played and some pleasant and friendly teams involved.
I would to thank everyone who played, for their commitment to the team and help with these matches. I am sure I can say that we all enjoyed ourselves despite the results.
Thanks also to West Bridgford Tennis club for the use of their indoor courts and for providing the after match food.
