Fixture: 3rd Team v Hollies 2
Result: Lost 1 - 3
The club has entered 4 teams in this year’s competition and it was the 3rd team that was the first to play. Captained by Dave Clough who partnered Linda Clark, the team travelled to Whitchurch to play the Hollies 2nd team. Dave and Linda lost the first rubber by 6-3,6-3 and were also unsuccessful in their second rubber, losing it 6-3,6-4. The other Oswestry pairing in the team was Dave Bass and Nia Christoforou and they had more luck, winning their first rubber by 6-2,6-3 and then pushing their opposition all the way in their next rubber before succumbing on the third set tie-break, losing 6-4,2-6,1-0. So Oswestry 3 lost their opening match, banking 1 point out of the 4 on offer.
