The weather again played quite a part in this week’s matches. Thankfully we had our webbed feet on again.
Matlock Tuesday League.
Away – 26 June – Wirksworth.
The matches with Wirksworth are proving odd. This week we were away, but managed to win on their green. Considering it is one of the biggest greens in the league, no mean feat. To cap it all, we won by a greater margin away than we did last week at home!
We shared the games two each, but – as the saying goes – points mean prizes, and we got more, coming out winners by 70 to 56. As I said last week, although we won our points ‘for’ were low, and indeed we did drop a place in the league. With this again relatively low score, we may fall again. Now down to 7th.
Next match – Away – Matlock Park -3 July 6.30pm.
Home – Chatsworth – 28 June.
We had to wait for the water on the green to dissipate before we could play; it was like a swimming pool. When we did get started, we really played well. This fixture at Chatsworth at the start of the season was not a good result for us. However, everybody played so well in the this match that we won all three doubles games, coming out on top 63 to 43.
In the six singles we won four out of six, giving us a score of 75 to 36. The overall match total was 138 to Parwich, 79 to Chatsworth, more than making up for the early season defeat.
Next match – Away – Matlock Park – 5 July – 1.45pm.
No Sunday match again this week, as it’s Wakes Week. Make sure you come and see us on Friday night to have a go, as part of the week’s celebrations. Have a good week.
