Men's A MATCH REPORT

Men's A vs. OHRC A

Sat 17 Oct, 2020 - Away

Lost - 7-1

This time our men’s A team went indoors for a match across the road at the Oxford Health and Racquets Club. Despite a late welcome and a timed warm-up we still took our time to get used to the courts first! We decided to go out with two strong teams. Alec and Andrea showed already a decent pairing in the last match but could not hold their strength on the fast carpet against the opposition’s first team, finishing 1-6, 4-6. An equally slow start had Phil and Martino with 3-6 and 3-6, but OHRC’s second pair did not win their game easily as almost every game went over deuce.

In their second match the fight was even better and the games were only won by the serving party. However, just losing one break point in each set was unfortunately enough for OHRC to win both of them with 3-6 and 4-6.

Having gotten used to the carpet Alec and Andrea almost managed to win the first set (5-7). OHRC’s second pair just didn’t have anything left in the tank, and Norham nailed the last set with 6-2 and the point for Norham.

Despite a final score of 1:7 Norham vs OHRC we can be confident about our performance so far! We should be excited about our upcoming matches. Well done guys!
