Captain’s Comments – July 29 – August 4

Well the weeks are rolling on by and all the matches are now getting played as the weather has improved recently but our team results are very much a mixed bag!

Hove E continue to find it hard in the 4th Division and suffered another 0-4 defeat last week to the top team Dyke D. Even though we lost all 4 pairs there were some close matches and Rick Potterton & Monica Muschamp took their match to 3 sets.

Hove D won 4-0 away to Hollingbury A. James Maddox/Julia Bevan, Dave T/ Pam Martin, Peter Hermann/William Housego-Woolgar all had comfortable 2 sets wins and they gave us the Ladies Doubles.

Hove C had a easy 4-0 victory against Stanford C who gave us the 2nd Mixed and Mens Doubles. Des & Carmel O’Dell won 6-0 6-3 and Suzie Pettit & Sharon Buxton won 6-2 6-1.

Hove B took 5 vital points from Blakers A winning 2.5-1.5. Our points came by way of Darren Pollard & Margaret Oldfield winning 6-3 6-1 and Matt Lea & Patricia Pollard winning 6-2 6-0. Morna Fox & Suzie Holmes halved the Ladies Doubles 2-6 6-3.

Hove A lost to a strong Dyke B side 1-3. Sarah Barr & Lou Burchill being our only winners 6-4 7-6 in the Ladies Doubles.

Hove continue their struggle to stay in the 1st Division but Dyke were to strong and we lost 0-4 which included having to concede the Ladies Doubles at a late hour.

With so many members on holiday or injured at the moment team selection is causing a few problems but good luck to all those that are able to play this coming week in whatever team you are asked to play in.
