Match Report

Another competitive match at the Village Hall in what has been another very competitive Division 2 season.

Over the years Denbury Tykes have been regular opponents. Results generally have been difficult to predict so it was pleasing that last night Taverners secured a second successive win and our third of the season.

No one managed to win all their sets but the closest to doing so was Martin who lost narrowly to Huw 11-9 in the fifth. Martin had a notable win against "high flying" Paul and played very well throughout the evening.

For Denbury Tykes both Paul and Huw won 2 sets each and in particular credit to Huw who had an excellent evening epitomised with his win over Martin when coming back from 2 games to 1. 

Colin is getting back his consistency with another important 2 points and I chipped in with one to maintain our recent improved form.

Finally I must mention the doubles which secured the win by 6 sets to 4. I thought Colin and Martin played their best set of the season against Paul and Huw to win in 4. This was only Denbury Tykes third doubles defeat of the season in 12 sets - an excellent record .........

Will look forward to our return fixture on 17th February and probably another close encounter/nailbiter!
