StAD_Battledore_20Nov2012

I was not expecting much this week given that:

a. We were playing the second placed team.

b. Two thirds of the team played in the mixed tournament the day before

3. The other third had not played for 2 weeks.

..but it just shows how much I know as we ran out convincing winners! We did mix the team up bit to allow for Dave’s aching limbs, but this left the 2 young Hannahs to fend for themselves against some strong ladies which was a tough ask after their weekend exertions, but they did well getting to double figures in the second game. So we came through the levels 6-2 up, and got to 9 by the 6th set. Their second pair won 3 of their 4 mixed to keep us from getting all 4 points, most frustrating to loose the last game Arrrgghh! Best on the night was Fergus, Helen and Colin who all got 5.
