Solihull Junior League WMPC v Tudor Grange
Sunday 22 October 2017
Second match and we play Tudor Grange sees four PC members turned up early at the second of the Solihill Junior League games and a different venue from the first match.
Raring to go we picked the court for the evening. We were one of the first teams there so we waited patiently for the opposition.
Tudor Grange’s team manager walked straight over to say hello, fellow self employed coach, Steve Kiernan who I had not seen for a couple of years. So we did a bit of catching up whilst the boys knocked up and we filled the score sheet in.
Down to business and Ethan and Toby went on for their first game. Best of three games and with a comfortable opening game beating the Tudor grange first pair in two games to take the rubber. Then Charlie and Joe took to court. Not quote such a fast start but once they got going a good game, settling in nicely. Again in two games to give us two rubbers.
There pairings stay the same for the second round but our second pair play the first pair from Tudor. Grange and vice versa (our first play their seconds). Mot quiet so comfortable but we came though the second round of games unscathed, with another two rubbers.
Third round not quiet as easy. The pairing changes (as per the format) and our no. 1 player pairs up with our 3rd player, whilst no. 2 plays with no. 4. Now on two courts al four players took to court. Toby and Charlie made light work of the opposition moving them around and generally putting them under pressure. Joe and Ethan won the first game but the opposition fought back in the second taking the game 22-20 to Tudor Grange, one game all. Sorted themselves out in the last game to give us an overall win on rubber 6-0. Well done guys here’s to the next one.
