The team have secured promotion with this final win and are now 7 clear points ahead of their nearest rival at the top of the table. Hinstock 1 need to win both of their final matches 4-0 to knock our team off the top!!
Matt and Mille maintained their excellent form and have not dropped a set in all 7 matches. This match was the toughestfor them and they were 1 set up in their first rubber and 5-3 in the second set, they thought it was all over but Hinstock gave them a bit of a scare by getting back to 5-5 before Matt and Millie dug deep to take the set 7-5. Their second rubber was a more straightforward straight sets win. They are top of the player statistics for this division and have been an excellent assett to the team and the club.
Rosemary and Richard had an amazing tussle in their first rubber. Rosemary was hitting some splendid cross court winners and Richard was running around at the back of the court like a 19year old!! This was Rosemary's last match for the club as she is moving away from Oswestry in December, and we all wanted her to do well. It was great to see them win their first rubber against one of the strongest pairs in this division and win a crucial point for the club in their bid for promotion. They fared less well in their second rubber but it was an excellent all round performance from the team.
