Abbeydale 7 – 2 Ladies

Report by Hannah

Ok, so here goes my first attempt at writing a match report (apologies in advance)!

The first round of games didn’t provide us with the start we had hoped for, with all 3 pairs losing. Sally and Ada were beaten 21-12, 21-9 by Abbeydales first pairing. Sonja and Eliza did come extremely close to winning their game, but narrowly lost in 3 (17-21, 21-19, 21-14). It was a similar story for me and Sam who lost 16-21, 21-10, 21-17. We could quite easily have been 2-1 up at this point but found ourselves behind 3-0 😦

After the second round of games, Sally and Ada managed to get us our first game, beating their second pairing 19-21, 16-21. Sonja and Eliza again took it to 3, but narrowly lost to their third pairing- 10-21, 21-14, 21-14. Despite playing perhaps our best ever game together, Me and Sam lost to their first pairing in 2, 21-14, 21-12

The third round saw Sally and Ada come agonisingly close to beating their third paring- 21-17, 21-13, 21-19. Sonja and Eliza lost 23-21, 21-5 against their firsts and me and Sam won our last game 21-13,21-11.

Despite losing 7-2, it was a fantastic team performance and we can take a lot of positives going into the next game. The players of the match go to Sally and Ada who both played unbelievably well. Bravo 🙂
