April 2017 matchesHoram League Vs Hailsham - 10th April 2017
A sunny evening, though a little chilly, saw us on the road to Hailsham's Astro courts. Luckily the weather had been dry and the courts weren't as slick as sometimes.
Two out of three matches were close run things, but we ran out victorous overall.
Ladies - Catherine Philpots and Clare Sandman came through 6-4, 6-4.
Mixed - Jane and Chris Brooke lost narrowly 6-2, 3-6, 10-5.
Mens - Alan and Josh Davies (and opponents) hadn't listened to the "don't play a third set, play a Champions tie-break instead" and finally won 2-6, 6-2, 7-6 (7-5).
Well done all for making the fairly long trip down to Hailsham, let's see if we can keep up the good work next time.Various matches - 24th April 2017
At home to Crowborough in the Horam League.
Hugh Anderson & Sandy Bartlett Vs Andrew Simmons & Dave Field
Score: 3-6 6-4 (5-10 championship tie break)
A very close match decided in the fading light on a championship tie break.
Crowborough took the first set after HK started the stronger, but HK battled back to level at one set all only to lose out on a championship tie breaker as the light faded.
Away to Groombridge in the Mixed Cup.
Clare Beale and Alan Davies trecked over the Groombridge for a Mixed Cup game against Robert Katzaros and Ollie Gerrett.
Whilst the HK team were full of beans and up for the battle they soon discovered that their opponents (Robert and Oli) were a tough proposition. After losing the first set 6-2, HK heaved themselves into a 2-1 lead in the second, though sadly that was to prove their last winning game as Groombridge took the second set 6-2 also.
Away at East Hoathly.
Julia Parker and Clare Sandman played a cup match, we won and through to the QF on Monday 12 June.
