A repeat of last year’s fixture with Natwest again scraping a draw with a win in the doubles. Chris had another match on so I allowed him to play his three and go. He must have been in a hurry, winning all 3 without dropping a set. NatWest struggling to field a team brought in Andrew Muller from the B team, who despite losing all 3, performed admirably, taking Jai to 5 sets and helping secure the doubles’ victory, coming back from 10-6 down in the opening set.
I am using a different bat this season, for the first time in 30 years, so expect my results to be very much up and down.
