Beauchief B proved too strong for the Mixed team on the 21st by beating Ridgeway by 4-0 in the Mixed League match at the Greenhill club’s courts on a glorious Midsummer evening. First couple Mick Mason (making his first Mixed appearance since the club had a team some years ago) and Lucy Mitchell lost to a really strong first Beauchief pair by 0-6, 1-6 whilst Jasper Patel and Lindy Payling lost by 2-6, 7-5 in a close tussle with the seconds. In the second round Mick and Lucy lost to the second pair by 2-6, 3-6 and Jasper and Lindy lost by 0-6, 0-6 to the first couple. Final score was Rubbers 0-4, Sets 0-8, games 13-49.
The team then were treated to sandwiches, sausage rolls , crisps and tea and cake sat in the sunshine. A pleasant evening despite the loss.
