SECF R League v Littlehampton – lost 1:6

There’s no easy way to put this but we lost 1-6 to Littlehampton last Thursday, which was disappointing. However it was level play and their handicaps (3, 3, 4 and 8) were lower than ours (4, 7, 8 and 8).

Our sole victory was Jane Smith who beat her same handicap opponent 7-6, 7-1 and who then went on to put up a good fight against her next opponent with a handicap of half hers by taking it to a third game decider.

I could say that we are doubtless out of experience of match play (this being the first match in almost two years), but presumably the same could be said of Littlehampton.
