Fine Basingstoke League win for Andover C
12:00am Wednesday 7th August 2013 in Sport
Following on from their close 3-5 home defeat to Beechdown C; Andover Tennis Club’s men’s C team hoped to reverse the result at home to Odiham B in Division 4 of the Basingstoke League.
With several squad members unavailable captain Trevor Blake fielded Rob Moon in his first match of the season together with the experienced John Snowden as the first pair and regulars Brad Fettes and Damian Roberts, as the second pair. Snowden and Moon quickly took a grip in their first match with Snowden making the most of the breezy conditions to slice and spin the ball from their opponents reach while Moon played sensibly and energetically covered the court. They won 6-0, 6-1; and then 6-3, 6-1 in the second match. Fettes and Roberts had a much longer tussle and making too many errors they conceded the first set 4-6 but then, after many lengthy rallies, they wore down their opponents to take the second set 6-3.
