Hurlingham beat Surbiton 4-3

[<<] [>>] by Alan Chance at Hurlingham
27th June 2023 (AC - Mary Rose)

Playing at home on a fine day, Hurlingham won the doubles with a protracted three ball ending, the last two hoops and peg taking nearly an hour, and were leading 2-1 at lunch. Surbiton came back to draw level at 3-3 in the afternoon and in a tense final game David Owen pegged out just as time was called. The Surbiton team had lost Jonathan Smith, who went down to -0.5 not long before the match and so was ineligible. Mary Knapp replaced Jonathan and deserves a special mention as the only player on the day to win both her singles games.
