O50s womens matches hosted at University Courts

Play got started after a very moving 2 minutes silence! The matches were for the first time scored as PAR 15.
We took on Essex first. Essex had a very strong squad winning all 3 rubbers 3-0 suggesting a real whitewash - that was in fact not the case as there were some very close matches.

Essex then played Oxfordshire and again won all the rubbers but with some incredibly close matches - a 3-2 and a 24-22 game score!

We had to get our bodies going again (is the break a home advantage for us oldies?!). We took on Oxon and Carol got us off to a great start winning 3-1 - hooray! Sarah then managed to battle back from 2-0 down to win 3-2 - so we'd won a match - even more hoorays! Rebecca just unable to make it a 3-0 win v Oxon but we were very happy with a win and 2nd place overall.

Team: Sarah Howlett, Rebecca Moore and Carol Hargreaves.

  • Essex: 24 points
  • Cambs: 9 points
  • Oxon: 8 points
