Works League team make cup exit

Ridgeway’s Works League team made an exit from the Knock Out Cup after a defeat at Welbeck on Wednesday night.   Glyn Rudge partnered Keith Hukin and they set off well taking the first set against the first Welbeck paor by 6-3 and lost the second by 6-3.  (There should have been a deciding set in this format but it was decided to leave that until the second round of rubbers had been completed and see if it was necessary to play the set).  Second couple of Tim Robinson and Jasper Patel lost to the second pair by 3-6, 1-6.  In the second round Glyn and Keith lost by 3-6, 2-6 whilst Tim and Jasper lost by 1-6, 1-6 to the firsts.  This meant that Welbeck had won 3 rubbers with the outstanding one tied at one set all so playing that would not have affected the result.  So the final match score was a half to Ridgeway and 3 and a half to Welbeck, Sets were 1-7 and Games 20-45.
