Fixture: Oswestry Men 3 v Oswestry TT 1
Result: Drew 2-2
The men’s third team, captained this season by Richard Hann, played their first fixture away to local opponents OTT, a team of very capable junior players.
In the first round rubbers Han, partnered by Keith Grice quickly dropped the first set 1-6 before regaining their composure to take the second set 6-3 taking the rubber to a deciding third set tie break which they narrowly lost 0-1. The second pair of Lowell Lloyd and Nick Elliott also dropped their first set 2-6 before fighting back to take the second 6-1 but they won their deciding third set tie break 1-0
In the reverse rubbers Hann and Grice won in two very closely contested sets 6-3, 7-6 but Lloyd and Elliott went down in straight sets 2-6, 5-7. So again a draw was the final result with each team gaining two points.
