Player Comments:

  • "Good to meet Chris and Matt and play a well contested doubles match. The very first game lasted almost 8 minutes and after taking the first set it was very much even throughout the second set until 3-3 after which Paul and I won three consecutive games to win it. Fortunately the match was also completed in time to watch a certain football match involving England and that didn't disappoint either :)"  -- Terry
