Nat. League Div7 at Oxford

The division 7 match at Oxford was an odd affair. Mark Maclure arrived for the match sporting a pair of odd trousers and declared to those present that he had been playing golf. Oddly he seemed to believe that this offered some form of explanation.

The Chairman took advantage of the trip to Oxford to satisfy his literary leanings with a tour of the cities libraries. This bibliophilary was the reason he gave for arriving with only half of his kit. Odd. He was forced to take to the court in odd socks, thankfully one of which was white.

Andrew and his differently decorated feet were only able to win the odd game in their rubber going down 6-1, 6-2. Team Captain Martin Trees took his rubber 5-6, 6-2, 4-6 to level the match.

Thanks to Martin for providing the match details, oddly short on tennis and high on fashion. He tells me he was the definition of sartorial elegance, both on and off the court, oddly I believe him.

Mark Maclure lost his first set 1-6 before taking the second 6-2. He then proceeded to dash to a 5-1 deficit in the third set before staging a remarkable recovery to take the set, the rubber and the Match for Moreton by the odd game.
