  • "Brilliant evening of tennis, both teams played really well and it was the most enjoyable doubles match I've ever been involved in. Lots of twists and turns and long rallies but myself and Keir just managed to get over the line in a 3rd set that required a court change because of time! Thanks again for a great match. "  -- Liam

Reveal CommentMaggie Finck & Mark Osborn v Steve Westgate & Michelle Cooper (May 18) 7-6 (7-2), 1-6, 3-2 TBC

Player Comments:

  • "The first set became very close once we got over a slow start. We managed to catch up to make it 6 all and eventually took the tiebreak. The second set was a completely different story as Steve and Michelle ran away with it. Mark blamed his glasses, when he took them off again, we won a game. Glasses off we started the third set but time and light were running out so we stopped at 3-2. It's not likely we will be able to complete this match as it is probably too late. It was fun."  -- Maggie

Player Comments:

  • "Aaron and Liz started off strongly, and built an early 3-0 lead in the first set. The turning point came when Sarah took a tumble, grazing her playing hand and injuring her other wrist. The pain seemed to galvanise her, and though Aaron and Liz themselves had chances to take each set, we managed to take the key points in what was a very close and enjoyable match. Thanks to everyone involved."  -- Jon
