Captain’s Comments June 3-9

There is very little to talk about regarding this week’s matches which were either postponed because of the Diamond Jubilee Bank Holiday or the poor weather.

No matches were played on Tuesday and only one on Wednesday with Hove B playing their home match against Stanford A which they drew 2-2. Martyn Howe & Nicky Swann had a comfortable victory in the 1st mixed winning 6-1 6-0 and Kathleen West & Suzie Holmes kept up their impressive record this year coming from behind to win the ladies doubles 2-6 6-4 6-3. The other two matches were close affairs and with a bit more luck we could have got something from them but James Maddox & Andy Prim lost 3-6 6-7 and Matt Lea & Maddy Dunckley lost 5-7 4-6.

On Thursday Hove played Queens but once again found the opponents too strong and lost 0-4. The closest we came to gaining any points was in the ladies doubles with Winnie Fox & Patricia Pollard but in the end they lost 6-4 4-6 3-6

Lets hope for better things next week which is the last week of fixtures for the first half of the season…….How the weeks speed by!

Have a great week!
