Collapse AllCavendish Rec & Queensmead Singles - Round 16 | Thursday 2 May 2019 to Wednesday 26 June 2019 (Midpoint: Wednesday 29 May 2019)

67% of all possible matches were played which is a very respectable score and group 1 was especially active. Don't forget we are always here to help if you are struggling to hear back from another player, and if someone does get in touch with you for a match, don't forget to reply! Hope to see you again in the next round.

Group Summary:

The top three players in this group all finished 4 wins to the good and runner up Julie beat champ Gianfranco in three sets. But it was Gianfranco who played the most matches, picking up crucial points for sets won in matches he lost, so the congratulations go to him this time. Julie and Ross tied for second place on points but Julie lost fewer sets per matches played so is runner up. So many good, close matches throughout this group, it's hard to single any out, but we like the sound of Gaurav's match against Gianfranco who was very gracious in defeat and said Gaurav never gave up "and deservedly won". Well played all!

Group Summary:

Valerie was an outstanding performer in this group, beating both the top two players with the loss of just one game. Unfortunately, she stopped there! Sam and Ivan both played more matches, and Sam just pipped Ivan at the post by one point to top the group. Very well played to all three. This wasn't as busy a group as group one. Please do get in touch if we can help another time. But some good tennis played. Here's to the next one.
