One of the Association’s longest standing matches and always a pleasure playing on the immaculate grass courts at St George’s Hill – one of England’s most prestigious tennis clubs.  Always a close match and this year was no exception as the PSOBLTA team donned its whites and entered the private members club in Surrey.

PSOBLTA first pair: Russell Dykes & Tim Stotesbury

  • beat SGH second pair (Simon Terry & Ken MacDonald) 6-4, 6-4
  • lost to SGH first pair (Chris Jenkins & Jeremy Fleming) 6-2, 6-3

PSOBLTA second pair: Ed Fry & Brad Keenes

  • lost to SGH first pair (Chris Jenkins & Jeremy Fleming) 6-4, 6-2
  • drew with SGH second pair (Simon Terry & Ken MacDonald) 4-6, 4-2 (match abandoned due to rain!)

Overall match score 2.5-1.5

Our thanks to St George’s Hill for hosting the match and Chris Jenkins for managing the fixture on the day and making the team feel very welcome.  The team enjoyed a fine bbq afterwards and will be spurred on for 2018 for more grass court, serve and volleying tennis!
