Winning start to Club's SECF Restricted League Campaign

Our SCCC Team kicked off their GC Level Play Restricted * League programme with a fine 6-1 win over Tunbridge Wells on Tuesday 10th August at Southwick.

The team - Tony Jolly (2), Andrew Fall (4), Di Langridge (5) & Phil Harrison (6) - led 2-1 at the lunch break, with Di and Phil each winning their singles matches, our only loss coming in the doubles - each individual match is best of 3 games. After lunch each of our players won their singles matches, to round off a good day. Don't get the idea that it was all easy going - of the 7 matches (consisting of 19 games), 5 matches went to the third game to decide the winner. Well done to Di, who won both her matches 2-0.

Next match: V Littlehampton at home on 20th Aug, with fixtures V Reigate Priory (H) and Ealing (A) to be confirmed.
