In the 2nd round of the Mary Rose, Nottingham were drawn against another very hospitable Northern club, on a glorious summers day. The doubles had reached an interesting pegged-out ending when lunch, with an excellent home-made apple strudel, beckoned, with the visitors 2-0 up. They eventually took three of the afternoon singles, at which point the unfinished games were abandoned.
