Team : Stuart, Hannah B, Richard, Charlotte S, Graham, Lily.
Result: Lost by 38 points 149 – 187.
Stuart stepped in for Harry, and with Hannah managed to get high point scores in 3 of their games, including a win and a spectacular comeback in one. Graham and Lily also had 3 strong games with 2 wins. Richard and Charlotte contributed most points on the night with 6 strong games but it wasn’t enough (despite glucose supplies from Lily and the legendary Whittle tea & bickies) for the hosts to take a victory by 38 points. Well done to Charlotte for lasting until quarter to midnight and overall a great team performance against a seasoned division 5 side and all played in good spirits!
(Note: Next match against Evergreens on Thurs 19th Jan is postponed.)
Team : Josh, Hannah, Colin, Anne, Sam, Lucy
Result: Lost (-90GH) 165 – 174 (SCR)
Close but no cigar. Sam and Lucy easily won all their games on the night with a huge contribution of 64 points, but there were a lot of close games in the other sets which meant the 90 point handicap was just out of reach. The match was played in a great spirit and Whittle did well to hang in there and keep their noses in front. Grrrr.

Team : Sam, Lucy, Dave, Janet, Colin, Charllotte
Result : Win 230 – 136.
Brilliant result, St Andrews D totally dominated the match despite St Peter having 5 serves to 2 and a 90 point start. Not a single game was dropped and the 90 point deficit was wiped out at the start of the 5th set and the match won by the 8th set. Thanks to the players for an exceptional cup run. I can honestly say that apart from the 1st round I thought we were up for some tough matches, but we really pulled out great performances and have not been in danger in any of the last 3 games. Well done to everyone.
