The weather forecast proved to be spot on for a change! All looked good but then with half an hour to go the rain started to come down. Northallerton were by that time en-route. It seemed a shame not to start, so we agreed to play one round and then see how it went.
Northallerton fielded a team consisting of three promising youngsters but Marie and Louise managed to win both sets 6-0. Lesley and Pam also came away with wins in both sets of 6-0 6-3. No sooner had it brightened up and all set to play the second round, then the rain came down again. We all decided to call it a day and finished with tea, brioche and Lesley’s rock buns (followed with a debate of whether butter was needed with them!)
A good result for Spa and nice to see Northallerton giving some juniors match practice, just a shame it couldn’t all be played.
Final Score 4 – 0 plus 1 bonus point = 5
