Letchworth lost to Wrest Park 3-4

Team captains will know the feeling. You have used up all your powers in merely getting a team together, and then one of them has the temerity to get his handicap reduced, thus taking your team's total below the maximum limit. Thankfully the Regulations for Tournaments (H1f) allow a week's grace, so all was well.

The result of the doubles game was decisive, but both singles were much closer. John Bevington was ahead until Terry found his rhythm and went round in two turns, finishing soon afterwards. John Hall set off like a train, but Bryan managed to apply the brakes and got home first.

Terry's good form (how could he do this to his ex-teammates?) continued after lunch, beating Bryan after John B had beaten John H. After Eric lost to Ian it was 3-3, but David Marsh won to give Wrest Park the match. It was David, of course, who had had his handicap reduced. The team captain now has to start all over again.
