Pav & Ave Ladies 2nd Team beat The Green 3 -1

The match  started under beautiful sunny weather only  to be stopped for half an hour by a downpour at the beginning of the second matches. As we were drifting towards abandoning the match which would have given us a draw,  the sun thought it would be a good idea to make an appearance and gave an easy win.

The first pair of the Pavilion & Avenue Ladies  2nd team (Josephine Acerenza and Hilary Jewers) won their first match 6-0 /6-1. Encouraged by their win they went on to win their second match vs the Green first pair Christine Greenwood and Sheila King 6-4 / 6-3. With Hilary superb net skills and Joséphine strong and consistent  defence it was a pairing made in heaven and ensured our overall victory.

Our second pair Jemma Turner and Karen Uden put up a valiant effort but lost the first match in a  championship  tie break  10-5 vs the opposition 1st pair  Christine Greenwood and Sheila King. Very frustrating as they were leading 4-1. Not discouraged by the result of the first match Jemma and Karen Showed their true skills and went on to win their second match vs the opposition 2nd pair Louise Gorman and Grace Amarel 6-4 / 6-2.

All in all a good day’s work with a few laugh on the way.
