Mens A vs Frimley

Well, Saturday was a tough away match, as we’d rather expected, at league leaders Frimley.

On a blustery, wintery day taking four hours to play-out, with all four rubbers going to champions tie-breaks and two of the eight normal sets going to tie-breaks, we lost 7-5. We only prevailed in one champions tie-break, despite being up in three of the four.

Still, a good result on their turf against a side that are likely to win the league and gain promotion back into the Premier division.

We picked up 10 valuable points and I think before the match started, we’d have been happy with that – although a part of us all felt a draw would have been a fairer result. In the end, however, it was not to be.

We have only one match remaining before Santa visits – that’s at home against Surrey Sports Park on Sunday, 6th December, 10am start.

Let me know if you can make it.

cheers P

Mens A vs Onslow Village

A superb 8-2 win yesterday, taking maximum points thus adding 16 points to our tally.

On a typical damp Sunday morning, with plenty of British drizzle about, we played a well-contested match, with two of the four rubbers going to Champions tie‑breaks — and we ended up winning both.

We have started the Winter season well and currently sit top of the league. A great place to be, although we have some much tougher tests to come.

There are two more matches this side of Xmas – see dates below. Let me know if you can make either or both of these dates.

  • Saturday 21st November – away to Frimley, 1pm start
  • Sunday 6th December – home to Surrey Sports Park, 10am start
