Team: Sally, Mary, Emily; Peter, Ad, Steve
Our first home match of the season finished as a 6-3 win.
With all three courts to begin with, the first two rubbers finished quickly: Em and I easily beat a weaker 3rd pair; Sally and Mary were outpowered by a very strong ladies pair. However, Peter and Adam had a corker of a match which went to three. Losing the first match to 12, they just turned the tables in the second, winning to 19. By the third game,they had warmed up and won to 12.
The second round of games all went to Broomgrove, with us winning both mixed games, and Sally and Em taking the ladies in 2 – to 19 and 18.
So at 5-1 the match was won, but a resilient Nomads side had saved their best ’til last, winning 2 of the last 3. Unfortunately neither Em and me, nor Pete and Sal were able to cap of the victory with another rubber. However, Ad and Mary took their final rubber, giving Adam the only 3 out of 3. Hats off!
Now with 2 wins in 3 we have a break of almost a month with the next game not until 25th November.
