O45s @ Masters Championship weekend in Bournemouth
The over 45's team had a very successful and enjoyable weekend both on and off the court.
Playing in the lower age group meant that collectively Somerset were the oldest team - but despite that still finished second ,with victories over Surrey(4-0) ,Sussex(3-1),Devon (3-1),I of W(3-1) - a draw with Middlesex (2-2) and only one loss to the eventual winners Kent (1-3) . Sadly they were our first match of the weekend and one wonders if we might have got a better result if we had played them later on - but they were a very strong team and deserved to win the division .
The Saturday night dinner and dance was a great success ,especially with our own Champagne reception prior to the meal !
My thanks to all who played and performed so admirably ,and special thanks to our team manager for keeping us on track ,on time and on the right courts !
