Over 50s Inter Club Match - Knighton Park

Match Results.

Knighton Park were excellent and patient hosts for this annual event, the Draycott team arrived in several installments. The match was held in a friendly yet very competitive atmosphere. The match was followed by a buffet that was certainly up to the standard we've come to expect at this event.

Gareth Hickling has offered to provide a trophy for this event which was accepted by both teams. The problem now is to come up with a name for it that will indicate who the participants are so if you've got any ideas can you let us know.

Match Result - Draycott 4 Knighton Park 2

Draycott won the matches on tables 1,3,4 & 5 but the one big factor in the win was that they won every Doubles match. This fact tipped the balance in their favour on tables 3,4 & 5.
