Thu 15 Jun 2017 - SWF Federation League                    (Played at Budleigh Salterton CC)

Budleigh Salterton v Cornwall

Final Score:  Budleigh Salterton  2      Cornwall  5

The Cornwall Federation team travelled to Budeleigh Salterton for their fourth game of the season.
The playing conditions were perfect, both the weather and the courts.

In the morning Bob and Des had a really tight doubles game but eventually won by 'Plus one on time' after a capital effort in the last turn by Cornwall's Captain, Bob Burnett, from two behind to one in front.

The two morning singles games were shared with Peter Cutting winning by 15 and Ian Wilson losing by 9.

So at lunch Cornwall were two-one up.

In the afternoon all the games were close encounters with Cornwall winning three out of four and the one loss by only two points.

Cornwall's hosts then treated the Cornwall team to the traditional and excellent tea before their journey home.

Cornwall results so far in the Federation League are two wins and two losses with two more matches to play.
