Triple win’s for Masters Team’s

40s teamNott’s Masters over 40s, 50s and 65s teams all played on Sunday 3rd December.
The 40s travelled to Bedfordshire, while the 50s and 65s entertained Suffolk and Worcestershire 2nd team respectively at Chilwell Olympia.

After the level doubles, Nott’s won one Men’s and two Ladies doubles – score 5-3 to the Home side, with Nott’s needing to win all four remaining Mixed rubbers to win the match outright.

Rubbers 6-6, games 12-12, points Nott’s 450 - Bedfordshire 431.
Great win.

The 50s team proved to be too strong for Suffolk. They won all four Men’s, three Ladies and one Mixed rubbers. Unfortunately, in the Mixed category, Alan Bowmer had to retire after winning the first set due to injury. In addition, Andy Cokayne sustained an injury in the level doubles and pulled out of the Mixed. Nott’s won the match 8-4.
