Waterside J vs Waterside H
An excellent result for Waterside J, in spite of Ian Waldock’s absence. Alexis played superbly against the opposition, displaying a wide range of strokes and skills. Clearly, Alexis is capable of performing at a higher level and the J side is very grateful for his help. Kristof and Matt both gave very good value for their sound efforts. The match finished at 10.00pm, which was amazingly early for a change!

Waterside L vs Waterside M
bob daviesThanks go to Bob Davies and Dave Eaton for stepping in last minute to play up for our teams. The match was closer than the scoreline would suggest and was played in a good spirit of friendly rivalry as both teams have done well this season. The first match was very close between Tony and Jon with Jon edging it on the 5th. Paul then played a good consistent first game before the next four games all went Ls way. In the second half things were evenly matched, especially with an tony ha 02excellent 5 game match between Dave and Tony which Tony just edged. Last game of the night and decider for man of the match was close between Paul and Jon. Jon just edged it this time having lost badly last time to Paul
