9U Brooklands vs Croftside Summer League
By Angela Cuddy
Great win in windy conditions...
It was windy but the sun had broken through the clouds when we arrived to play this home fixture. Our team comprised Gabriel, Elijah, Thomas and Eesa.
The wind really picked up as play got under way and made the conditions very tough for everyone to play. This was Eesa's first match and he had a very tough first rubber against arguably their best player. His nerves abated for the second singles rubber though and he found his stride, sealing the win in two sets. Thomas and Eesa also won their doubles rubber which is a fabulous start for Eesa's competitive tennis journey.
All our boys played well and with great attitudes and finished the fixture just minutes before the heavens opened and a downpour ensued!! That 8-2 victory must take us to top of our box, or at least very close.... We'll have to wait for the other results to be entered to find out. Fingers crossed we get to the play offs!
