Men's A Match Report...
The Men's A winter campaign got of to a good start on Sunday with a comfortable 8-0.5 win over newly promoted Thornden.
The Winchester team of Tim Weir/Carl Richardson, Ben Jepson/Mike Johnson and Duncan Trew/Mark Swinscoe arrived at thornden to find extremely windy conditions. Undeterred they raced into a 2.5-0.5 lead, with Trew/Swinscoe doing very well to halve with Paul Scullard and his partner.
Momentum continued with the team winning all the matches in the next round with Weir/Richardson playing some entertaining tennis to beat their No 1 pair, some of Richardson's reflex volleys were first rate.
With the match won, the team raced through the last round of matches, motivated no doubt by the impressive spread of food. The very last match was however abandoned, with Jepson/Johnson a set up when a heavy shower (and the fear of missing out on food) sent the players scampering.
