Back To Winning Ways – N.K Cup and Ladies Vets.
Chislehurst players returned to winning ways with two notable victories in 24 hours from Tuesday evening into Wednesday morning. The evening match was the first round of the North Kent Cup competition, and in the Mixed Doubles section, Diane Day and Clive Richardson were up against a pair from Bromley Cricket Tennis Section. The home pair took the first set 6-4 in a little under one hour then suffered a 1-6 reverse in the second set before rallying to a 6-2 victory in the deciding set, the reward being a home tie versus Bexley 2 in the next round.
Wednesday morning saw the first match for the newly-formed Ladies Veterans team, comprising Susan Sheen and Judy Peel, Diane Day and Diana Guthrie, travelling to Bexley for their debut match. Both pairs won their first round rubbers 0-6, 2-6, Diane and Diana repeated the score in the second round while Judy and Susan took their second rubber by 0-6, 3-6, to complete a creditable 4-0 victory!
