May 8: Div W East: Grafton (4ths) 1 - 3 Raynes Park (2nds - Nev,Peter,Antony,Adam)
A tight dramatic match, which could have gone either way, was won by RP when Antony and Adam won the last match in a deciding Championship tiebreak. Earlier Nev and Peter won both their matches. Well done all.
Sarah & Neville won 6-2, 6-2 vs Lucy & Steven
One black eye, a dodgy calf , broken strings and some good tennis were served up to several hardy spectators on Monday night. Despite Lucy's warming up accident and Steve's calf strain, they put up a spirited performance but in the end Sarah and Neville prevailed, the key moment being Sarah's game-winning string-busting volley mid way through the second set!
Many thanks to Sarah for organising a successful tournament and to all it's participants.
