Beechcroft 2 v Great Barr 1
The 1st fixture for Beechcroft 2 sees us up against Great Barr 1 who are new team to the Winter league this year. Oscar and Sam were the 1st pairing and Stuart and Jack were the 2nd pairing.
It was lovely sunny day for it and just a bit blustery.
The 1st pairing had a very stiff test against 2 particularly good players and battled hard but went down 2-6 1-6 in their 1st match.
The 2nd pairing who were up 3-1 in the 1st set managed to get over the line and win the set 7-5, in the 2nd set they were down at the start of the set but once again battled back to take the set 7-5 again.
This put the match all square 2-2 going into the changeover.
Jack and Stuart the 2nd pairing also had a very tough test against Great Barr 1st pair and although played well in the 2nd set still went down 1-6 1-6.
Meanwhile on the other court Oscar and Sam were up against the Great Barr 2nd pairing and played really well with great passing shots by Oscar and really good serving by Sam winning the match 6-4 6-3.
This meant a good draw for Beechcroft 2 but a bit unfortunate with only getting 1 point due to the games won overall.
Would like to say thanks to those who came down and supported the team.
Beechcroft2 looking positive for the season ahead!
