Despite losing 5-1 to the same team last week, they turned things around and played superbly both individually and collectively to win. Finlay Richardson and George Bristow won their singles games, whilst Finlay and Peter Woodmansey beat their number 1 & 2 seed at doubles. At 3-3 in sets the game went into a sudden death 10 point tie break with Finlay teaming up with George to run out 11-9 winners. A fantastic tennis match and well done to the boys.
