Roehampton beat Surbiton 7-0

[<<] [>>] by Tim Russell at Roehampton
11th April (GC - Inter-Club)

The top pairs, Tim Russell and Joel Taylor for Roehampton and George Noble (a late replacement for Don Beck) and Alison Maugham for Surbiton had a tight doubles encounter, with Surbiton coming back from 5-2 down to win the first game 7-5. Roehampton improved to win the next two games 7-3, 7-5.

In the reverse singles Mark van Loon ran out a comfortable winner 7-2,7-2 against Martin Burger and Dan Pearson won a tight match at the golden hoop against Stephen Harbron, 7-3, 3-7, 7-6 with an excellent long jump shot (over his own ball which he had injudiciously left blocking hoop and clearance.)

After tea, Roehampton completed a clean sweep with Tim Russell beating George Noble 7-2, 7-1; Joel beating Alison in a close contest 7-6, 5-7, 7-4; Mark beating Stephen 7-2, 7-4 and Dan beating Martin Burger 7-1, 7-4. Thanks to the Roehampton ground staff who presented three fast, true lawns.
