Dorset 2 v Somerset 2

Somerset 2nd v Dorset 2nd-- Sunday 13th October - Bournemouth

 

Our first match of the season - away to Dorset ; got off to a bad start as they did not open the school until 5 minutes before the match was due to start, so no rewards for our early arrival  .

 Our ladies  got us off to a flying start in the singles  with Jenny  winning at first singles and Vicky  winning a close 3 set battle . Sadly our men,Joe and Dean - were less successful as they  came up against 2 strong players .

 Our first ladies pair of Nicki and Fiona  won both their games with tight 2 set victories but sadly Vicky and Emily were unable to secure a win . The men also failed to fashion a win although James and Simon( stepping in at the last minute for a sick Matt Hussey) took their first pair to 3 sets and Dean and Joe had a tremendous fight with their second pair eventually  losing out 27-25,22-24,21-19.

 The mixed slipped away with close games with Simon and Nicki going down in 3 at third .

 Final Score ;Somerset 4 Dorset 11 

 Sadly no points but some encouraging signs for the new pairings - so hope for future matches .

 Team ; James Buckle,Simon Watson, Joe Wakelam,Dean Martin

              Fiona  Rooke, Nicki Harris,Vicki Cornish,Emily Buckle,Jenny Naylor
