Another successful week for the Alcester teams…
The Mixed As had a very comfortable 3-1 win at home to Berks & Balsall Common. Alex and Emma made light work of their two rubbers while Tim and Mel won their first 6-1, 7-5 but narrowly lost the second 10-8 in a Championship Tie Break. Great tennis – well played all.
The Ladies As earned a solid 2-2 draw against Littletons. Emma and Sam despatched their opponents in good time while Tina and Debbie had a marathon first rubber which unfortunately resulted in them going down in a Champ Tie Break. Their second rubber was slightly quicker but in total they were on court for 3 hours 40 minutes!
The Men’s Ds came up against a very strong Hampton in Arden team who are clearly destined for higher divisions, going down 0-4. The league rules state new teams start at the bottom and work up and clearly HiA will progress quickly up through the divisions. All that said, well played to the guys (Dave & Harvey, Nick and Mirek) for giving them a good match.
The Men’s As had a decent 3-1 win away against Leamington B. Alex and Stu made quick work of their two rubbers, only dropping 4 games throughout. Tim and Charlie won their first, were ahead in their second only for Leamington to fight back to take it on a Champ Tie Break. Division 1 really is anyone’s division with the top six teams separated by just 4 points.
