This week saw another 3/2 win for Bournemouth North! As with the England football Bournemouth North reaped the benefits of playing on home ground, this time against Chris Chubb’s Muscliffe Maniacs.
Malcolm, Graham and John won a closely fought triples game 13/11 against a very strong Muscliffe team, whilst Anne, Mike E and Steve were defeated 13/8 in an impressive performance by the second Maniac’s triples team.
The three doubles games resulted in a 13/0 win to John S and Steve, a 13/8 defeat by Gabriel and Graham despite a strong fight-back in the later stages, and an exhilarating deciding 13/4 win by Malcolm and Graham, who played magnificently throughout the lengthy third doubles game to clinch the match.
The final score – BNRC 3, Muscliffe Maniacs 2.
Once again it was a feature of the evening that the games were played in a very competitive but friendly and sporting manner, whilst a warm and welcome sun shone down on us all.
Let’s see if we can repeat these home wins when we start playing away matches next week against Flights Falcons.
