Dorset 2 v Somerset 2
Team; Clare Harrison, Fiona Rooke, Emily Buckle, Vicky Cornish, James Buckle, Dean Martin, James Bright, Matt Hussey
Difficult game – hard to find the school hall and all locked up when we arrived. No water provided, no ice available and cold showers.
When the number one men’s singles player arrives without his shoes you know things are only going to get tougher!
Despite losing the match – congratulations must go to the ladies and especially Clare – for winning all her games, after a 3 set winning “warm up” in her singles – 2 wins in her doubles with Fiona and then an excellent 3 set win with Matt at third mixed. The only other success came in the men’s doubles when James (Buckle) and Dean got their double’s pairing off to the first win of the season.
Next match on Sunday at home to Berkshire 3rds – time to start winning more games and getting some points!
