Mens A vs Avondale (final match)

Despite a great result last night, beating the league champions Avondale at home 5-4 and adding 10 further points to our tally, we have fallen short by 4 points. We just needed to win two more sets to avoid relegation.

As you can see from the league table, it was all very tight in the end with only 6 points between 3rd and 6th places. After playing 108 sets of tennis and racking up 106 points, 6 wins from 12 against some strong opposition, it still wasn’t quite enough to remain in the top league.

Time to rest-up now and prepare ourselves for the Winter season that will likely commence in early October.

Thanx to all who played a match or two this Summer season. Your efforts are much appreciated.

Mens A vs Camberley A

Friday saw us add a further 12 points to our tally with a 6-3 win away to Camberley A – rather helped by the fact they only turned out two pairs.

The final match of the summer season is tomorrow at home to Avondale, the line-up being:-

Me, Patrick, Mr T., Richard Awbery, Shaun Fishburn and Ollie Kirk

We need 16 points to guarantee safety. This will be tough against Avondale who are top of the league and, given our result on Friday, they will be champions (as long as they field two or more pairs tonight).
