Despite heavy rain during the day, on Monday 17th May both the mens and ladies sides were in action.
Men: home to Tavistock C. Players, Dave and Dave, Phil and Ian. The score was 35 for Plymstock and 55 for Tavistock.
Women: away to Menheniot B. Players Jess and Anne, Nicky and Jane. The score was 39 for Plymstock and 54 for Menheniot.
The men started late because one of the Tavistock pairs confused Plympton with Plymstock. This sort of thing appears quite common and none of the matches has yet finished in full daylight.
For the ladies…match was on, match was off, on … The weather was making it a very difficult decision for the Menheniot team captain but in the end we went ahead with playing, which was the correct decision as it turned out to be a better evening than expected. ( Well, just one 10/15 minute rain interval). Everyone raised their game on the night and had some good rallying, volleying and hard hitting moments. Jess and Jane had a thrilling third set tie break which they won 16-14 whilst Anne and Nicky gave Menheniots second pair an exciting game clinching the win on a tie break in the second set. A really great evening of tennis with a very friendly Menheniot team. We are looking forward to the return match on home ground in July.
