Juniors vs Seniors

As the hail came down the Juniors did battle against the Seniors of the club. Ok so we were playing indoors!

Before play even got under way the Juniors suffered a setback with Jack Pearson getting a neck injury watching Match of Day. Many thanks to James Barkshire for turning out at such short notice.

In the first round Dot Allan and Joe Arshed showed no mercy to James Barkshire and Oscar Brydon with a comfortable 6-2 6-1 scoreline. Robert Fielding and Tom Arshed pulled it back for the juniors winning their match 6-3 6-4 against Nick Clifford and Eric Burton. The final match of the round ended in a tie with Millie Kennedy and Natasha Scott halving with Caroline Clifford and Ling Ling Bravo-Escos 4-6 6-3.

All change for the second round, Dot and Ling Ling took on Millie and Oscar. In the first set Dot showed off her volleying prowess to Oscar and the experience of the seniors continued into the second set with them winning 6-2 6-2.

Caroline and Eric showed no mercy to James and Robert in a 6-0 6-0 match.

In the last match Joe got the beating of his son, pairing up with Nick, to record a 6-2 6-1 win over Natasha and Tom.

In the last round the stamina and experience of the seniors really showed winning all three rubbers easily.

Overall a good afternoon was had by all and my thanks to Joe Arshed for helping organise.
