January came to a close with three more matches in quick succession. Friday saw the Ladies playing Hamstead Manor over at Tipton. Unfortunately despite the usual effort and endeavour, it ended with a familiar result – a 6-0 loss.
Never ones to be down-hearted, the Ladies tried again at home on Monday night. This time the opponents were Cannock. Once again some close games followed with several games going to a third rubber. But sadly we were unable to pick up one of those deciders. So again we were left with a 6-0 score that didn’t truly reflect the night.
Following hot on the heels of these matches, on Tuesday the Mixed team took on Reedswood 2. Having picked up games in both losses to their first team, the hope was we’d be able to improve on those scores and perhaps push for a positive result. With four or five of the nine games going to a decider, it was a tough night – but one which finally ended with a 6-3 victory!
