Mens III away to Boldon III Wed. 20th June 2018

Vince & Tony          David (Skip) & Dennis       Andrew & Chris

Boldon won by 11 sets to 5 and 73 games to 59

A fine display of battling tennis wasn't enough for our boys as Boldon came out comfortable winners in a much closer match than the score would suggest.

Yet again Vince & Tony were top couple as they won 3 of their 5 completed sets, two of which were against the Boldon top pairing. They are the longest established pairing in the club and look set to be together forever. 

With holidays and injury hampering team selection Skip David issued a cry for help and the call was answered by fourth team captain Andrew and new club member Chris "Kid " Nichol. The pair played together for the first time, with the Kid playing his first match after a six year break from the game. Although they failed to win a set they fought for every point and i can see this baby faced assassin ( no, not you Andrew ) moving up to higher teams as he gets more time on court. A brave effort lads and well down.

Last but by no means least Skip David paired himself with Tennis Dennis and they performed heroically to win 2 sets at a canter, losing the other 3 by a whisker. The Skip couldn't wait to get home to see Michelle and tell her about it.

With 2 wins and 2 losses so far the team should stay put in this league for next season but will of course be going all out for wins in the last 2 fixtures.
