Hi bloggers

Last sunday the under 11's played St Johns in the return fixture , starting in drizzle our team consisting of Elliott and Franky won the first set 7-6 , after a momentous match winning a hard fought tie-break , meanwhile Louis and Harrison were losing heavily , so the half-time score was 1-1 . then the reverse fixtures and Elliott and Franky lost while Harrison and Franky played superbly to clinch the set and claiming a draw , with a wholehearted display , and a greatly improved performance . So a result of 2-2 .

The over 11's started brightly with another tie-break win with Tyler and James winning a marathon tie-break 10-8 , meanwhile Elliott playing in his 3rd match was winning with Tito , so Sproughton were 2-0 up at half-time , then the drizzle started again and Tyler and James were getting turned over 1-6 but Tito and Elliott excelling themselves raced into a 5-0 lead , but with the drizzle getting worse the lead diminished into 5-3 , then we won the final game to claim out first win against St Johns 5 sets to 3 in total .

Well done to all the players involved esp Elliott who played both matches and still had juice left at the end !
