Ashtead Racketball Away
The team travelled to David Lloyd/Esporta/Virgin Active/David Lloyd again last night. The new multi million pound refit hadn't quite reached the courts though. A polite notice informed us there were no lights or heating! Fortunately 2 courts were ok, a very white one & a rather yellow one-perhaps some lights had been upgraded?
Baz offered to step in at the last minute. After a considerable warm up he played his signatory mix of nicks & boasts nearly getting the better of a giant of a player. 0-3.
Ant spent the drive over considering all the #2 players he didn't fancy playing settling on their left handed Neil as least favourite. Neil duely obliged pinging perfect lengths into the corners. 0-3.
Dan was up next & put on an incredible display of RB, picking up shots we all thought were winners. Take a look at one of the shorter rallies in the video. 1-3.
Yours truly played Gordon, a well known opponent to ASTC players. All three games went close & I nearly pulled off an epic comeback in game 3, coming back from 0-6 to 9-10 but alas another 0-3.
Next match is home v Woking on Friday 23rd Feb at 19:30 which is also the 150 Club draw for a top prize of £500. Why not come along to both?
