Hereford Whitecross

Great weekend for Hereford Whitecross club recorded five wins across six different competitions.

Ceri Nicholls mixed B team lead the way with an away trip to Worcester G. The team of Richard and Sara Gregson and Tobi Watts and Ceri Nicholls both had tough first rubbers against the Worcester first and second pairs both going to three sets. Tobi and Ceri made easier work of their second match winning in straight sets while Sara and Richard lost out. Overall a 3-1 win away from home for a great start for our latest new team.

At the same time our Ladies A team got their season in Division 5 West off to a great start beating Kempsey B 3-1 at home. New paring Isla and TJ lost a close match in their first rubber going down 5-7 4-6 but came back to win in the second. While Val and Antonia won both rubbers sealing the win for Whitecross.

Next up on Sunday were the Men’s A team away to MCS A. Oscar Darke just made the bus for a 13.45 start and Tobi clearly tired from his exertions the day before had a nap in the car on the way up. Blustery conditions met both teams under the Malvern’s. Oscar and Alex (club champion) had a slow start going 0-3 down in the first set against the MCS first pair but then won 6 games in a row to clinch the first set, the second went to MCS before Oscar’s power and Alex’s all court game turned the rubber in our favour. Mike Howard and Tobi Watts had a difficult first rubber losing in three sets but comfortably won the second. Alex and Oscar carried on their form from the end of the first rubber winning their second match 6-1, 6-1.

Not to be outdone the junior teams travelled to Redditch. The under 10 girls team also recorded a 2-1 win With Edie And Evie picking up wins. The Under 12 boys beat their Redditch counterparts 3-0 in a convincing win. Sadly the under 9 orange ball team lost out but Head coach Andrew Griffiths said there were good performance all round.
