Winter Team Shield
The tenth round-robin match of the Winter Team Shield 2017/18 campaign took place last friday evening with Team C (Trotter) taking on Team B (Edwards). Team C needed to win this and their last match to stand any chance of making the Grand Final in March!
The tie was in doubt due to potentially frosty conditions as there had been through the evenings leading up to the game but the players gamely took to the court. Team C got off to a flyer winning all of the first three rubbers but then Team B steadied the ship and took control of the fixture. Team B eventually won by a scoreline of 9-6 to keep their unbeaten record intact.
So Team B join Team A (Peachey) in qualifying for the Grand Final at the beginning of March. The question now is whether each team will rest some key players or look to go through the season unbeaten! That would be the first time it’s been achieved in Team Shield/Team Trophy tennis!
Next week’s fixture sees Team C (Trotter) taking on Team A (Peachey) in the penultimate round-robin match of the campaign!
Have a great week,
