Mixed 1 runners -up again

6th Apr. 09

The mixed 1st team were involved in the Kent League division 1 final for the 3rd consecutive winter. This time they were away to Sydenham 1. In a close 1st round Sally Holmes and Dominic Wood beat the Sydenham 1st pair 7-6, 6-4 and Anne Gibbs and Peter Elsden lost 6-2, 7-5. Going into the 2nd round the match was finally balanced with only 3 games separating the teams and Gibbs/Elsden managed to win their rubber in a champion’s tie-break. The result then hinged on the result of the Bay 1st pairing which they unfortunately lost 6-2, 6-1 and hence the match was lost by a set.
