After winning their first league fixture of the season, Mens A went down to a heavy 8-1 defeat away to Abingdon B on Friday 10th October. Unavailability of key players gave opportunities for both Will Treadwell and Tim Claridge to make their first match appearances of the season. Unfortunately the opposition, who were playing in Division 2 last season were too strong. Rohit and Alex did secure a victory against their second pair and Dan and Steve squandered a series of match points against the same pair but ended up losing all 3 rubbers.
Our 3D team were also hit by injury and unavailability and were indebted to Jayne Wallace stepping in to play at the last minute. A creditable performance against Leys A on Wednesday 8th October saw them go down 287-209.
Mixed A made it two wins out of two with a comprehensive 7-2 win at home to Long Crendon on Wednesday 15th October. Alexandra and Alex Cousins made light work of all three of their rubbers and were well-supported by Steve and Alison and Nick and Frances who also secured two wins each.
A busy week of matches lies ahead with Mixed A away to Pegasus tomorrow, Mens A home to Windrush D on Wednesday and 3D A away to Wallingford A on Thursday evening.
