The various weather reports were unanimous and by lunchtime a soaked Cheltenham team, leading 2-1, was marginally happier than a drenched Dulwich.
The first shot after the downpour hardly reached halfway to hoop one and as the lawns eventually drained, unfortunately for Cheltenham so did their performance, Dulwich winning all 4 remaining matches.
Thanks to Richard, David, Tony and Stuart for making the journey down to London.
