SENIOR MATCH NEWS
Mike Richardson bt Louis Peacock 7-6/3-6/11-9
Epic battle with both players having opportunities to win. Mike saved 4 match points from 5-9 down in the championship tie break to finally break Louis’ resistance and get his name on the board of Lev.
Zoe Mortimer-Ford bt Melissa F 7-6/6-2
Melissa played some excellent tennis (especially in the first set), but was finally worn down by the all round consistency of Zoe’s game.
Louis Peacock/Will Faux bt Craig Davies/James Cuthbert 6-4/7-6
Another tight tussle which could have gone either way. Inspired tennis from Peacock/Faux towards the end of the second set was enough to take them over the line.
Jane Overington/Zoe Mortimer-Ford bt Suzanne Broadbridge/Melissa F 4-6/6-2/10-7
A great match up between two pairs at the top of their game. Greater matchplay experience finally paid off for the Overington/Mortimer-Ford partnership in a nail biting championship tie break.
Zoe Mortimer-Ford/Will Faux bt Melissa F/Mike Richardson 6-2/6-2
Some great shots by the F/Richardson combination, but just not enough to cause the champions too much concern.
Mixed doubles h’cap
Yvonne Faux/Phil Sansom bt Hilary Clifton/Jonathan Nott 6-4/7-5
Quality doubles tactics from the Faux/Sansom partnership finally overcame the Clifton/Nott pair, with a special mention due to Phil who extended his unbeaten run at the club to four sets.

Many thanks to all the umpires (especially Lawrence who did a great job in umpiring the ladies doubles), and to our Club Captain Mike Richardson for helping organise a great day.
