 The team were not expecting to win this first match against the 3rd team but were disappointed with their performance. The hard hitting and accurate placement of the opposing first team gave the team little chance to play their game. Linda & Sam were totally outplayed in both of their rubbers but Mike and Carol put up a brave fight. This was a tough start to the matches but was good practice for the team.
