Melbourn vs Cambridge University I
Tues 5th March
Melbourn won 17-4
Melbourn Ladies took on the Uni 1sts with a team of four, but made light work of the shortage to win by four strings to one.
The first players on court were Debs (4), who took on Juhi James and Frances (3) against Ada Krzak. Debs made good use of the backhand wall, directing rallies up and down that as she came through 3-0 whilst Frances put aside surprisingly dropping the third game to Ada to win the other three comfortably and come through 3-1.
Next up were Sam (2) and Madeleine Wulpert and Kate (1) against Hannah Yogasundram. Again, in both matches the Melbourn players were well on top, winning 3-0. In Kate’s case this came through using Hannah’s powerful ball-striking against her cutting the ball out to take time away and making the Uni player run into the front corners.
