So Close! (East Anglia Cup 45-60)

Posted on June 26, 2022 | in Match Report, Tournament | by

Cambridge University RTC came within 1 game or some might say 1 point of lifting the East Anglian Cup on Saturday 25th June away at Prested.

I am so proud of the team’s all round performance to come so close after 6 hours and 9 sets of high quality tennis.

All fours players won 2 out of their 3 matches, with one match going to 7-7 – 40 all and game/match point and that is how close we came.

Can I say a big thank you to my team of Ulla Petti (who will be a Ladies Varsity star in the making) Sonia Badenhorst, and Richard Bowers who all were a credit to CURTC.

So having finished joint first level on 12 points each with Prested it came down to games won and lost for which we fell just one game short.

Thank you to Prested for hosting such an enjoyable Cup tournament.

Alan Sharpe – Team captain
