[<<] [>>] by Richard Keighley at Nottingham
11th May 2023 (GC - Inter-Club Shield)

Nottingham hosted this match in the Preliminary Round when the predicted heavy showers did not materialise until the last hoops in the final game were being contested. The match score does scant justice to its closeness. No fewer than 10 games out of 18 were decided by the golden hoop.

Nottingham names first:

Cathy Turski (4) and Tom Dewar (5) lost to George Collin (2) and Marilyn Robinson (4) 3-7,6-7

Andy Dixon (5) lost to Richard Keighley (5) 7-3, 6-7, 6-7

Debbie Watson (6) beat Michael Tideswell (5) 2-7, 7-6,7-4

Cathy lost to George 0-7, 6-7

Tom beat Marilyn 7-4, 4-7, 7-6

Andy lost to Michael 7-6, 6-7, 5-7

Debbie lost to Richard 6-7, 6-7

Debbie kindly provided a tasty lunch and tea for both teams to enjoy whilst they discussed the "might have beens" of a match played in a competitive but always good-humoured spirit.
