A question of styles

Donic It is always difficult playing another team from the same club, especially if opposing players have previously sparred with each other on several occasions on practice nights at Testwood. Each player knows the others’ weaknesses and need to produce something special to win the games. With Wojciech playing for the G side, it seemed like […] Continue reading →

Waterside L vs New Community A

Competition holder We were able to welcome a familiar sight (and sound!) back to Testwood for this one. It was good to see Brian Hayes enjoying his game again. Boy, can this guy play. He was too hot for any of us to handle that’s for sure. We had to therefore concentrate on picking up points from […] Continue reading →

Waterside M struggle

Waterside M It has been a struggle: three matches and three wins, sitting on second place in the table, but Waterside M is still struggling to manage their three players together.

Closer than the score suggests

Competition holder Tuesday night’s match at Cavendish Hall resulted in a 7 – 3 win for St Denys. Although 7 out of the 10 games only went to 3 sets, the result could/should have been more favourable as St Denys had an under-strength side and, although their substitute played well, we (Dave, Jeff and Colin) just needed […] Continue reading →
