Oakbrook Combined 2 V Ranmoor 2

Final Score 5-4 to Oakbrook

3.1.12 – The first match back after the Christmas Break and boy we knew it!

We got off to a flying start with Chris and Dave winning their rubber in 2 and Charlotte and Linda winning their ladies in 3 (despite a confusion at the end with the scores…) – phew!  Unfortunately Charlotte and Dawn managed to lose their ladies in 3 (we are blaming the cookies and meatballs – I’ll say no more!) and Andrew and Dave lost theirs.  There we found ourselves at 2 – 2 and everything to play for.  The games continued and we found ourselves at 4-4 and the last game on court was Andrew and Dawn’s   They lost the first match by quite a few points, then changed their game plan and managed to win the second.  With everything to play for (fortunately they didn’t know they were playing the decider!) the game was close all the way through but eventually they won the final end 21-17.

A great match, with good sportsmanship from both teams and we look forward to the re-match when hopefully we’ll all be feeling a little fitter and a little less full of mince pies and christmas cake!
