8th Mar 2018: Barnes v Wimbledon Racquets Club away

Barnes hosted Wimbledon Racquets club on a rather chilly night where the single yellow dot ball was definitely necessary, however, this still did not prove enough for the home side to secure victory losing by a margin of one game. All four matches were well contested and well matched with David Crane (yours truly as skipper) playing at first string, James Halstead at second, Euan Macfralane at third and Richard Ashton at fourth.
David managed a 3-1 win having initially taken the upper hand and a few unforced errors and better play from his opponent ensuring that the match was a little tighter, indeed the fourth game was finally taken 18-16 through some characteristic tenacity and boasts. James dug deep to dry and grind out a five setter but ultimately lost 3-1 to a player who seemed to have control in some of the latter rallies though James's reliable steadfast approach was able to win him some long points and try to wear down his opponent but in vein.
Rich faced a tricky customer adept with deceptive inside-out boasts, and did a good job of trying to extend rallies but a few too many unforced errors costs and lost 3-1. Euan was tasked with trying to salvage Barnes a win as at 2-1 down it was going to come down to winning on games difference (potentially points difference if it got more complicated!) and this proved to be a tightly contested duel. Euan, recovering from the effects of jet lag following his day's flight back from New Zealand was a little sluggish at first and faced a fit opponent, finally managed to best him 15-13 in the fifth set, a fantastic effort alas, we still lost by a game's difference! So close, yet so far.
A great tie and thoroughly enjoyed by all.
