Old Rugbeians

Posted on April 15, 2014 | in Match Report | by

The Ol’ Rugbeians came to town on April 12th, led by birthday boy Oliver Buckley.

In fact CURTC (Nick Heath and Gary Weller) showed estimable generosity to Oliver and Richard Bray by loosing their Doubles match 10-1 after winning the 2nd game. Simon Hirtzel (OR) and Kate Kirk came up with the match of the day in which games were traded from 4 all onwards. Inevitably the score reached 7 all and Simon edged the last game to take the tie. This was followed by the ‘feature’ match between Stephen Goss (OR) and James Thomas. Some great tennis but James was just overpowered while giving up 4 handicap points.

Over on the Green Court, things were going much better CURTC wise. Guy Kirk and Christie Marrian were on fire, well definitely hotter than luke warm, each winning their Singles matches 10-5. The Kirk/Marrian combo then took to the Court against their respective Singles opponents Michael Frith and John Huntingford to attempt to salvage a draw for CURTC. After a somewhat shaky start, Guy came up with the strategy to ‘Focus on Lunch’ which proved to be the difference as CURTC won 8-5 to draw the match 3-3.

Lunch followed and after a couple of recounts that too was declared a draw so an enjoyable days of tennis ended with honours even.
