Brigands share the spoils

CURTC, 2 – 2, Brigands

A fun afternoon of tennis ended with CURTC and The Brigands even at 2 apiece with the final Doubles being definitely the MOTD. CURTC’s Perriton/Parslow combo fought back from losing the 1st set to the Blisss/Stafford Brigands by winning the second 6-5. Keeping the service end they won the first two games of the (shortened) 3rd before crucially giving up a chase (service is sooooo important in Doubles….). Back came the Brigands to even things up at 5-all but CURTC had serve and whatsmore it was Mark’s left handed monster serves being fired down to the Hazard end. But arghhh… a Double fault and a chase and the Brigands took control and with it the game, set and match. A great spectacle and it did mean we could get started on Jeremy’s (Davidson) excellent lunch…

Inter-club matches are a great way the expand your tennis and help with your handicap. The way things work is: The Away (visiting) team is matched as closely as possible in terms of handicap by the Home team. (In recent matches the player handicaps have ranged from the low teens through to the high 80’s!) While this means we can’t always accommodate all who sign-up for Home matches, signing up for an Away match all but guarantees a game. Any Club member can (and is encouraged to) sign-up.
