This year saw our numbers slightly down and it was the first year in many that we sadly had no students from Southampton University. However, enthusiasm remains strong and we always had 4 courts in constant use with the usual age mix including school boys to those well into their 8th decade.
Club matches against Oxford University, Old Bradfieldians, the Marlborough Club and Winchester College were keenly contested and again the club was well represented in the ‘annual ‘RFA vs ‘WFA’ match.
Sadly we were outclassed in the Club knockout by a very strong St Paul’s II team following which there were the usual resolutions to be fitter for next year!
The evergreen Bev Boag and his partner were the runners up in the National Masters competition(over 65) and our end of season club tournament saw 26 players competing for the Letchworth Bowl, which was won by David Spiegel and Ben Hale who defeated Matt Burden and Rupert Graham Evans in the final.
