The match was played on a beautiful sunny day. The Southwick lawns had
just been prepared for the National Seniors championship starting the
following morning so with hoops set to 1/16th inch some of the players
struggled with their longer hoop runs.
At lunchtime Watford had taken a 2-1 lead. The afternoon session created
an exciting finish with the match drawn 4 all and the A team pairing of Ian
Parkinson and Daphne Gaitley going into a third game. Evntually Daphne
won the day for SCCC 7-4.
It was a great, close match with some high quality play from both sides.
