It was only a matter of time before Rowhedge I won their first match of the season. It was up to Luke Courtier, Morgen Bardell and his brother, Lewis Bardell to rise to the challenge to win the team's first match against CRGS.It didn't start off brightly for Rowhedge, however, as Joshua Adjodha and Brian Wong won their first two singles against Luke and Lewis. Morgen was up next and he recorded a fine comfortable win over Callum Latimer in straight sets. Lewis and Luke then won a singles game apiece, but Brian was as strong as usual and stopped Rowhedge in their tracks, beating Morgen in straight sets. The 'brothers' then played the doubles and had a good victory over Brian and Joshua in 4 sets. Lewis made it a good night for him by beating Callum comfortably, and this meant he had set up his brother to only needing to win his game to win the match as a whole. Having lost the 1st set 11-13, Morgen still knew he had a chance so he stuck in and then won the next 3 sets to complete Rowhedge's first win of the season and hopefully set up many more.
St James E managed to score a fine draw over The Gilberd B to stop them from running away with the division so early on. St James were 4-1 up at one point, but the leaders fought back strongly to remain unbeaten so far in the season. David Austin completed a routine 3 game win and Player of the Match award. Gilberd B then beat Rowhedge I 10-0, with all 3 usual players going unbeaten. Gt Horkesley G are 3rd, though they lost to Lawford E 6-4. Phil Daley produced a good performance, winning all 3 of his games.
