Seventeen Runnymede Royals players descended on the Wodson Park Leisure Centre in Ware for an interclub friendly match against a combined team from Braughing and District (BaD) and Hoddesdon Tennis Club Pickleball Club (HTC).
The teams consisted of 4 men and 4 women in the A team and 4 men and 4 women in the
B team. Sixteen rounds of timed games were played meaning sixty four games in total were completed. One point was allocated to each team for a win and no points for a draw.
The event was masterminded by David and Pam Stoten and team captains Nicky Pomery (BaD) and Alan Speller (RRPC) were on hand to motivate and lead their respective teams.
RRPC Chairman, Steve Harris, was the photographer for the day and managed to capture some great action shots.
When the results were counted, the scoreline of forty four to fourteen with 6 draws in BaD’s favour led Al Capitano of RRPC to say “It has been a fantastic day, but clearly we need to go back to the drawing board. Our next step is to book Louis and Thaddea to come and give us some coaching”.
Steve Harris added: “It was a pleasure to come to Ware and we have been treated to incredible hospitality from the team here. Huge congratulations on your win! We look forward to getting some revenge when you come to visit us in Berkshire later this year”.
All in all, a very good time was had by everyone.
