Mary Rose final Washed out

[<<] [>>] by James Death at Surbiton
11th October (AC - Mary Rose)

The final of the Mary Rose was held on the 2nd October at Surbiton and was played between Surbiton and the defending champions, Nottingham.

In the morning singles Dave Evans won quickly against Martin Beacon +25 to give Surbiton an early lead. Mike Hedge held off a spirited fight back from Mary Knapp to equalise +4. The doubles however just refused to finish and was eventually pegged down for lunch.

The 4 afternoon singles went on after lunch and with all the games in the balance the rain got heavier and eventually flooded the lawns leaving them no choice but to abandon at 1-1.

The replay is scheduled for some time in the spring and will be played as a full match.
