The 40s team got off to a great start against Warwickshire, winning three men’s and two ladies rubbers, score 5-1 at that stage to the Nott’s side, requiring two more wins out of four to be played in the mixed doubles category.
What a battle that was. Both 1st and 2nd Mixed lost in three ends – score now level at 5-5. Then a fantastic win from Nott’s pair Louise Bolam and Chris Parrott winning their match 20-22 in the third end. Score now 6-5 to Nott’s.
Kathryn Britton and Steve Farey comfortably won the final match of the day in two straight sets, resulting in a good 7-5 win to the Nott’s side.
