St Andrews D vs Evergreens C

Team : Sam, Colin, Dave, Lily, Charlotte, Janet

Result : Win for St Andrews D 202 (–40GH) to 135 (– 45)

Really good cup win with everyone contributing points on the night. A bit tricky at times with 3 serves to 2, and four games were lost overall, but these were all countered with good wins, and the overall points total was a great reflection on how well the team played. Sam and Lily picked up the only maximum 6 wins.

Boxing Day Tournament

The St Andrews Boxing Day Tournament 2010 will be taking place on Monday the 27th of December. Expect the usual format of round robin games followed by a short knockout phase to determine the winners. If you are planning on taking part please get there for midday so we can get pairings, groups and fixtures organised ASAP. There will be the usual charge of a fiver, to cover bacon butties, prizes and hopefully a bit of fund raising. Normally the finish is around 5/6pm and we then plan to go out for a meal out at a local pub. Please enjoy the day.
