Whilst the result was comprehensive, it was a closely contested match on Roehampton's fast lawns. The match ended under Roehampton's floodlights but not before the players were soaked by the automated watering system coming on at 9pm. Oops. Apologies Dulwich. With the groundstaff having all gone home ( and having forgotten a match was being held), it was left to Roehampton's Chief Executive to turn the taps off, getting his suit soaked in the process. With Mark van Loon winning a tight match against Guy Scurfield, after Guy came back from 6-4 down in the second game running hoop 11 from the North boundary at about a 30 degree angle and following up with an excellent hoop 12, the other matches were abandoned.
