Report by Bryan Harral

Wrest Park left their late surges in the doubles until it was too late! Having said that the Davids were level when time was called only to be pipped at the post by Wendy running the golden hoop! 2 -0 to Enfield at lunch. After an energy boost the afternoon’s singles turned the match around. The outcome now depended on Cliff’s game. Without bisques both players struggled to wrest(!) control and make progress. Despite holding out to the bitter end Cliff lost and the match was drawn. I should point out that Cliff’s moment of glory was in our previous match when he saved us from a whitewash.
