First an apology from the editor – this should have been posted early last week and… sorry, I missed the email from Mick. Sorry Captain! 🙂
And from Mick…
What’s that yellow thing in the sky! Looks like summer is here at last and we can look forward to a full weeks Tennis.
I think it is an appropriate time as we head into the ‘holiday’ period to thank all the Team Captain’s and there stand-ins for the stirling work they are doing to get as close as possible to fielding 6 full teams….it is not easy!
Last week Hove E lost 0-4 to a as normal strong Dyke E team but all 3 matches played were very close…we had to concede the ladies doubles.
Hove D gained a good 3-1 victory away to Blakers C with Geoff Davies/Julia Bevan, Peter Hermann/William Housego-Woolgar and Dave T/Anne-Marie Swift all winning in 2 sets. Dave & Anne-Marie had a particularly satisfying win as after winning the 1st set tie break they were 2-4 down in the 2nd set but came back to win the tie break 10-8.
Hove C drew 2-2 with Rookery-Withdean A.Our winning pairs were John Thrussell/Alan Stacey 7-6 6-1 and Sharon Buxton/Pauline Keating 6-3 6-3
Wednesday evening was a total washout for Hove A & B.
Hove gained 4 much needed points away to Stanford on Thursday evening. Darren & Josh Pollard won 6-3 7-5 and Martin Patrick & Patricia Pollard the 2nd mixed
I hope as many as possible will be able to get to a club session this week as at last we seem to have good Tennis playing weather to look forward to.
