Mens A vs Bourne C

Sunday saw our third match of the season with us visiting Bourne on a chilly but sunny Sunday morning.

A slight change to the line-up with the Chairman poaching young Charlie Welch for a Men’s B match at home (which they won). This meant that Kev Tucker made-up the team, so a pretty strong line-up for us.

Another very tight match resulted in a 4-4 draw. We played on the astroturf courts, which may have slightly favoured the home side (although only slightly).

There were some very tight sets, with three out of the four we lost going to 7-5. On another day, we could easily have taken maximum points here. Still, adding 8 points is a good result in this league, which is turning out to be highly competitive with not a great deal to choose between the top and bottom sides.

Our next match is on Sunday 8th November, at home to Onslow Village. I will confirm the line-up in the next few days.

Mens A vs Aldershot Methodists

We recorded out first win of the Winter season yesterday, with us prevailing 5-4 in a tight match.

We could well have chalked up a few more points here, but narrowly lost both a tie-break in one match and a champions tie-break (13-11) in a second. Still, a great win and a super debut from young Charlie Welch !

Our next match is away to Bourne C on Sunday 25th October, 10am start. No doubt they will provide a much sterner test.

The line-up for the 25th is me, Patrick, Jamie and young Charlie once again.

The next couple of match dates after the 25th are noted below.  Let me know if you can make them – thanks.

  • Sunday 8th November, home to Onslow Village
  • Sunday 21st November, away to Frimley A
