The Norfolk Ladies O60’s team have had a successful campaign in this years Seniors Inter-County Championship.
They were drawn in Division 1A home against Lancashire, Cheshire and Lincolnshire with the matches being played at the David Lloyd Norwich Club. Their away matches were against Hereford and Worcester, and Dorset and so they travelled to Malvern and to Bournemouth respectively to compete.
A strong squad was fielded with singles players Tish Peal(captain) and Caroline Blincoe who then teamed up to play doubles. Then the doubles pair in the team was made up of Sue Rich accompanied by either Audrone Strasauskiene or Jane Ray. Jenny Coady was on standby as reserve for all matches.
Over the 5 matches, which meant 25 rubbers played altogether, only 2 rubbers were lost by Norfolk in total, which is an amazing achievement. As a result the Norfolk Ladies now have to play Essex in the final play off. This will take place on Saturday 30th November at the David Lloyd Club in Dudley.
The 60’s have had a good year with a keen and dedicated team who have made the matches fun and enjoyable, and I thank them hugely for their commitment. Thank you also to David Lloyd Norwich for making courts available for our home matches.
The team look forward to playing in the final in a couple of months, fingers crossed for a good match.
