On Monday, the Mens 1 team lost 4-5 against Central Leicester Mens 1, ending any hopes of promotion.
David & Lee won one of their three rubbers, beating Central's second pair and losing narrowly to the first and third pairs. The story was the same for Alex L & Alex B, who also beat the second pair and just lost out to the first and third pairs. This was a creditable performance considering they've not played together competitively.
Henri & Raheel faired better and won two out of three rubbers. With the scores level at 4-4, hopes of victory rested on Henri & Raheel winning all three rubbers by beating Central's third pair in the last rubber. Unfortunately, it was not to be and they lost in three games.
It was yet another match where the players rued missed opportunities and this loss ends the promotion push for this season with a match to go. Mens 1 will be hoping to reverse the result when the teams meet again in just over a weeks time on Friday 29th April.
