Difficult weather conditions were no match for our Salisbury players this round, who fought on through wind and rain to complete some great matches! The abundance of lengthy rallies, deuce points and tight sets show how closely matched the players were, making for some really exciting scorelines. Thanks to everyone for submitting a lovely range of detailed match descriptions and friendly commentaries. Here’s to the next round!
