Waterside K vs Waterside L
Congratulations to Albert on his well-deserved wins and many thanks to Paul for being a reserve at short notice. This was a good team effort, with some well-fought games. Matthew’s first match, following a long break, showed determination and promise.

Waterside J vs Soton West I
Len Field kindly stepped in as a reserve. Disappointingly Soton West were still a player short. Felix Gaul was a well deserved Player of the Match winning all 3. Dan and Josh both managed to take a game of him before losing in the 4th. A good introduction for Waterside J to Div 2

Colin Fox reigned supreme for the M team, winning all of his three singles, before having to dash off to go rockin’ through the rye.

Waterside P vs St. Deny’s B
Notice anything? Not one deuce game in the whole match, despite some very close games. First game for the two youngsters in the higher division and they acquitted themselves really well. Really impressed in their straight sets win in the doubles. More experience at this level and who knows?
