1st Pair: A. Stephenson & D. Holland won 3-1
2nd Pair: J. Dawson & A. Birley lost 3-2
Under 15: O. Cox & J. Stephenson lost 3-0
The 1st Pair of Dan Holland and Gus Stephenson teamed up for the first time this season and played a great game of rackets. From the beginning, Dan's serve was a dangerous weapon and Gus supported with excellent consistency and an early lead was built. After going 1-0 up Radley came back into the game and levelled at 1-1, however, Dan’s serve was becoming increasingly more difficult to return, the Radley pair had no answer and Malvern won 3-1.
The second pair played a fantastic match but just came up short, in the end, losing by three games to two. James Dawson and Alex Birley, were always coming back from behind after going 1-0 and 2-1 down, however, they never gave up and played well to get to 2-2. The final game was extremely close and went to 10-10, Radley served well and won the final game.
The Under 15 pair, who were up against a very good Radley pair, played well at times however Radley served too well for us to compete.
A good afternoon with just one more match before the championships at Queen’s.
