Mens A vs Onslow Village

Yesterday saw another epic encounter – this time with Onslow Village on a very blowy day.

The bright sunshine bouncing off the wet courts made conditions very difficult for both sides, but we prevailed in the end picking up maximum points in a 16-8 win.

The score line probably merits further explanation. All four rubbers went to champions tie-breaks and two of the sets went to normal tie-breaks. Fortunately, in these key sets, we won 5 out of the 6 played.

We currently lie 2nd in the league with two matches remaining.

Looking at the league, Frimley are likely to win it and be promoted back up the top division. Depending on the results of our last two matches (and a couple other fixtures for Onslow and Bourne), we have a reasonable chance of getting promoted to the Premier division in second place. It would be great to achieve that and test ourselves against the best next winter.
