The New Hall team lost 9-11 against Loughborough Leys New Hall 2 last night, in a closely fought contest.
After drawing 10-10 in the away fixture back in November, the team knew it would be another match played with fine margins. Croakers were down 5-7 after the singles and doubles games and couldn't quite overturn that lead, drawing the mixed games 4-4. The team was composed of Samira, Ayesha, Jing, Henri, Raheel and Lee.
That was the last match of a successful season in division 2. The number one priority was to stay in the division and that has been achieved, so well done to everyone who contributed to a successful campaign. I'm sure David, the team captain, would like to pass on his thanks.
Here's to another successful season in 2016/17.

Before the match even started, both teams were without a third lady and the relevant games were conceded. Unfortunately, during the first ladies' doubles game, Jing rolled her ankle and was unable to continue, which meant that the remaining games involving Jing were also conceded. We wish Jing a speedy recovery.
