Semi Finals Day from the West Hants Club

12.44pm – The line up!

Good afternoon from Bournemouth! After a very hot and excellent curry, and a mind-blowing speech from Steve Tiddy last night, video to follow shortly, we’re back in action here at the West Hants.

The line up for the singles is….

Johnny Gray v Lewis Burton

Tom Burn v Jonny O’Mara

Adam Thornton Brown v Mark Whitehouse

Ollie Hudson v James Marsalek

Let the games begin!!!

12.48pm The Speech

Think Braveheart, Winston Churchill and Michael Caine in Zulu, and add a foot in a plate of curry and you’ll get the idea… It will be added as soon as I’ve managed to censor it…

1.32pm Latest

Johnny Gray is a set and 2-1 up with a break, playing really well. Tom is fighting hard but is a set and 2-1 down, going with serve.

2.03pm Pear Shaped

It’s all gone a bit Pete here in Bournemouth. Tom put up a brave fight but lost the second set 6-4, STSC 1-0 down. Johnny lost the second set but is getting it back together in the 3rd, first game.

2.08pm Good News!

The cajun chicken wraps are bloody delicious! Thought I’d share that…

2.17pm Nailbiting…

Johnny 2-1 down in third set, going with serve, if I had the energy to have a nervous disposition I would be biting my nails now… I know I’ve said it before but the standard of tennis is frightening. 2-2 now.

2.28pm Adam joins the fray

Adams on court now and has broken in the second game to lead 2-0. C’mon SUTTON!

3.10pm Too close to call…

5-5 in the first set in Adam’s match, Ollie has just started his match.

3.15pm Oh go on then!

1st set to Adam and STSC!!! We just need one of the 4 singles matches to bring the 2 doubles matches into play.

4.15pm 3-0 down

Ollie sadly lost the second set so it’s all on Adam now. Adam lost the second set to Mark Whitehouse of Raynes Park, it’s 1-1 in the 3rd. Sutton have put in a cracking performance in every match so far and could consider themselves unlucky not to have put one them in the bag.

3.42pm

Ollie just lost the first set 6-4 to James Marsalek. Adam’s a set and a break up 4-3.

Sorry guys it seemed you lost an update!

4.44pm Sutton 3-0 down

Ollie last the match after a brave battle. 2-0. Adam is putting up a hell of a fight and it’s 5-4 no break, in the 3rd set.

4.51pm All over.

That’s it guys, Adam lost out 6-4 in the second set and despite excellent performances by all the guys we went down 4-0.

Finals Day from the West Hants Club

Wed 11.22am

Train tickets are booked and I’m looking forward to a relaxing early train journey down on Friday morning. Fingers crossed for the weather!

Wed 11.26am

To celebrate the finals weekend we are running a caption competition with a £20 Vineking wine voucher for the winner. Go on, you know you want to!!! Caption Competition

Wed 1.34pm Caption Competition

Well we’ve had our first entry into the Caption Competition already from John Timberlake, “Ok boys, so here’s how it goes. When it’s your turn to start, you hit the ball as hard as you can into that square box you see just the other side of the net. After that you hit the ball as hard as possible anywhere inside the lines. When the other guy starts you just hit the ball back as hard as you can, keeping it inside the lines. Got it? Any questions? No! Good! In that case, I’m off to Vineking’s to get the Shampers.”

Thanks John!
