Player Comments:

  • "Great to get out with Adriano early on Sunday for our game. We were playing at the same time as the men’s final in the Austrian Open, but conditions in Kempston were a little cooler with a bit of frost on the tarmac at 9am. Luckily the frost cleared by 9.15 and conditions were good with the glow of the winter sun. Some great rallies followed and as always its a pleasure to play Adriano."  -- John
